The final Try saw Aldo Campbell rewarded for a good match. The second-rower stitched over following an attacking lineout. Bermuda spun the ball with Campbell running into a gap. He appeared to be tackled short but had the strength to reach out and down the ball in the try zone.

Alex Brown added a penalty to end the scoring, it gave Bermuda a 30-point victory.
