Kiwis forward Simon Mannering led a contingent of players to visit children at Wellington's Ronald McDonald house this morning, ahead of his side's Rugby League World Cup quarter-final against Fiji tonight.

The Bati could not make the most of Jordan Rapana's sin-binning and only held a slender advantage heading into the closing stages after Shaun Johnson and Taane Milne exchanged two-pointers.

Meanwhile, Fiji now have a semi-final showdown with Australia in Brisbane on Friday night.

Fiji have reached the last four on two previous occasions but were massive underdogs to make it in 2017 after being drawn with the Kiwis.

The Kiwis were highly fancied to progress despite last week's shock defeat by Tonga but they produced a flat performance and Fiji took advantage to claim a 4-2 win in a tryless game.
