Fiji 7s edge All Blacks 7s, tops table with another round to go

The Fiji 7s men’s team wrapped up the first round of matches at the Oceania 7s with three wins from three after a close 21-19 win over New Zealand this afternoon.

The win sees them cement their place atop the table, with the final round-robin matches left to go, where they will play all three teams again. The team that comes out on top tomorrow after the double round-robin format, will be crowned champions.

The side plays Australia again this evening in the second round of matches. They had accounted for a confident Australian outfit 26-14 in their first encounter yesterday afternoon. The hosts are expected to bring their best game to this evening’s match-up.

Fiji had also played and defeated Oceania 32-12 yesterday.

The tournament finishes tomorrow.
