Fiji storm to Sevens victory in Singapore

Joe Ravouvou scores a try for New Zealand against the Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team at the Singapore 7s on April 29,2018.

Naduva's late show came soon after John Porch thought he had sealed the win for the Australians by giving them a 22-21 lead.

In the process, the Olympic champions leapfrogged South Africa at the top of the HSBC Sevens World Series standings - with just the London and Paris legs to go.

Fiji, who started the tournament three points behind the Blitzboks, beat Australia 28-22 in the final.

Ollie Lindsay-Hague had a fine minute, having produced a try-saving tackle at one end of the field, he was then on hand to dot down at the other end soon after for 14-0.

Australia, who won earlier in the campaign on home soil in Sydney, worked their back into the match through tries from Dylan Pietsch and Maurice Longbottom to reduce the deficit to four points at the break.

They also climbed to fourth in the standings on 108 points behind Fiji (145), South Africa (141) and New Zealand (120).




New Zealand had earlier defeated Samoa for fifth place while U.S. claimed a dominant victory over Canada to win the Challenge Trophy.

Kenya will be looking to go past their 100-point target at next month's last two legs of the 2017/2018 World Sevens Series - in London (June 2-3) and Paris (June 9-10).

Earlier, New Zealand lost to Fiji at the quarterfinal stage of the Singapore Sevens, unable to translate their Commonwealth Games success onto the HSBC Sevens Series.

New Zealanders tormented Kenyans from the thrill of the first whistle, winning the ball from the kick off with Kurt Baker racing down the left before dotting down and converting his own try.

Skipper Oscar Ouma led by example giving a sensational performance which enabled him to make it to Singapore dream team for the second time this season.

The Kenya Sevens team sailed through to Singapore 7s Main Cup quarter-final after whipping U.S. 33-14 in their last match of Pool B on Saturday.
