- Australian Steve Jeffress joined compatriot Jake Higginbottom at the head of the Fiji International after the third round on Saturday.

Jeffress shot a three-under-par 69 while Higginbottom recovered from a mid-round slump to eagle the 17th for a 71, as both finished eight under for the tournament.

Fellow Australian Andrew Dodt was two strokes back after coming in with a 71 on another blustery and difficult day in the inaugural US$1.0 million tournament.

Fijian star Vijay Singh, who designed the coastal Natadola Bay course, fired a 70 to finish the day tied in 15th place at one over.
