China looking for its first victory in the tournament was first to score, with a try from Yingli Fu in the right corner. Changshun Shan was unable to add the conversion. China gained a yellow card advantage after Sioeli Pouhila was sent off for Tonga. China capitalized with a try by Zhenye Hu. Again, Shan did not connect, leaving it 10–0. Tonga soon responded with a try from Viliami Soakai in the left corner. Lisiate Taione missed the conversion. Hu’s second try of the match made it 15–5 at the half.
A second try for Yingli Fu and a conversion by Chonga Ma put China in the driver’s seat with four minutes remaining in the match. Japan’s fifth try, this time a converted try by Changshun Shan, converted by Ma, put the match out of reach. But, for good measure, Ma added a try of his own in the final minute. He could not, however, add his own conversion, missing just right. China proved a great deal in that win. China 34, Tonga 5.
