Fiji win fourth consecutive title in Hong Kong

Fiji win fourth consecutive title in Hong Kong

Chasing their fourth consecutive Hong Kong title, Fiji were one of just two unbeaten sides in the pool stages alongside the Blitzboks.

Two yellow cards in the first half for Kenya's Collins Injera and Willy Ambaka allowed the Pacific islanders to take a 17-0 lead at half-time.

Tries from Billy Odhiambo and Oscar Ouma put points on the board for Kenya after the break, but Fiji's early lead proved insurmountable.

The try by Vatemo Navovo all but ended Shujaa's hopes of winning the Hong Kong sevens after a brilliant run to the final.

A second-string New Zealand men's sevens team have comfortably dispatched Russian Federation 36-5 in their first match at world series tournament in Hong Kong.

Famed for a party atmosphere nearly unrivaled in the world of sport, Fiji enjoys the annual trip to Hong Kong more than most.

Captain Seremaia Tuwai, speaking after today's final in the Hong Kong Stadium, said: "I'd like to thank my boys for the team effort and thank the Kenyan team for a good game".

Fiji, who are nearly at full strength, thrashed New Zealand 50-7 in their final pool match and are on course to meet South Africa in the semi-finals if they overcome Argentina and the Blitzboks beat Spain.

Canada sits in 11th place in the Sevens Series standings with three tournaments to go; the team will face South Africa, Argentina and Samoa in pool play at the Singapore Sevens on April 27-29.

Earlier in the day there was another historic moment, this time for Japan, who earned a place in next season's World Rugby Sevens Series courtesy of a 19-14 win over Germany in the men's qualification tournament.

New Zealand's regular squad and coaching team are on the Gold Coast preparing for the Commonwealth Games tournament, testing the country's depth of sevens talent.
