Hooker Akker van der Merwe and winger Luke Morahan both scored a brace of tries as the Barbarians coasted to a 40-7 victory over Fiji in Belfast.

Van der Merwe (2), Matt Faddes and Andy Ellis went over for tries and Robert Du Preez converted all four as the Baa-Baas took a 28-0 lead into the break.

Fiji hit back 15 minutes into the second half with Waisea Naycalevu crossing and Nemani Nadolo adding the extras but Morahan went in for his double in the last five minutes to wrap up victory.
