The Hurricanes, up 26-13 at half-time, however, controlled a lot of possession with sound forward play with skipper Gibbins (Manawatu) in a feast of play and leading his side by example. Taranaki lock Broadhurst was another with a high work load.
The young Fijian side showed signs of weariness in the sixth and final match of an Australian tour.
They were unbeaten before losing 41-10 to the Blues and now 38-20 to the Hurricanes.
Fiji, the defending Pacific Cup champions, played with 14 players for half the match.
Fullback Ratunaisa Vatuiranuku was red carded just before half-time for stomping.
