Fiji, NZ, Kenya and South Africa top pools at NZ Sevens

It's the 2016 Olympic gold-medallists' first World Sevens Series event triumph of the season, and their first win on Kiwi soil since 2010.

Earlier, Australia finished third in Hamilton with a gritty 8-7 win over hosts New Zealand, with captain James Stannard kicking a last-second penalty goal.

The Innocent Simiyu charges now shift focus to the United States of America where they will compete at the Las Vegas Sevens from March 3-5 in the fourth round of the series.

FIJIAN rugby trademark off-loads hit worldwide limelight again yesterday when Fiji Airways Fiji 7s reps, Kalione Nasoko and Alosio Naduva combined twice to score the winning tries for Fiji in the Cup final of the Hamilton 7s in New Zealand last night.

With just over 30 seconds on the clock, Fiji scored a fourth try which sealed the victory.

The side had started the day on a poor footing, losing 33-12 to Sidney Sevens champions Australia in the Cup quarters, but managed to bounce off with a neat 33-19 win over Scotland in the fifth place semi-final.




Clark Laidlaw's side will now contest third place. Hamilton's final was another reminder that now these two teams set the standard in Sevens.

"We had to believe in that and we got momentum in the tackle and in the contact areas". There are some big lessons to take away and learn from these two tournaments which will give us great motivation moving forward.

England finished second in their pool on day one, following some impressive attacking rugby in their opening two fixtures.

England beat Russian Federation 47-0 and Papua New Guinea 27-0 before falling to South Africa in the pool decider.

"We did struggle at times in the tournament and won some close games but in the final in the second half we decided we were going to play better that South Africa and we did", said Gareth Baber, Fiji coach.
