FIJIANS helped the BGC Dragons win the Hong Kong Tens Tournament at the Hong Kong Football Stadium on Thursday night.

Former Fiji 7s skipper Emosi Vucago and Leo Naikasau scored tries in the final to help the Dragons beat Tradition YCAC 29-14.

Fijian speedster Rupeni Caucau, former Wallaby Radike Samo, Australian legend George Smith and Samoan Alesana Tuilagi were some other top players playing for the Dragons.

The Tana Umaga-coached side had earlier beaten sister side Carinat Dragons 38-0 in the semi-final.

Dragons had about 14 Fijians playing for the two teams.

Umaga was pleased with the win and dedicated it to the players for playing together as a team.

The Hong Kong Tens tournament, which has players from all over the world playing, is a social event held annually.

Some rugby legends who have played in this tournament include Joe Roff and Toutai Kefu (both 2006), Jonah Lomu (2007), Brian Lima (2008), Bobby Skinstad (2009), Waisale Serevi (2010), George Gregan and Christian Cullen (2011), Mils Muliaina (2012) and Justin Marshall (2011 and 2012).
