Youth 7s risk losing gold play-off spot

THE Fiji 7s under-18 side needs to win its remaining pool matches to qualify for the gold medal play-off at the Youth Olympic Games Sports Park in China.

The Sale Sorovaki-coached side lost its third pool match 17-12 to France yesterday after registering wins over Japan (29-5) and the US (29-10).

A win over France would have seen the young Fijian side being the first team make the gold medal play-off.

However, the results said otherwise leaving Sorovaki and his troops to try and win the remaining games against Argentina and Kenya.

The side played Argentina last night and faces Kenya at 3.30pm today.

Ratu Epeneri Uluiviti, Filipe Qoro, Ratu Filimoni Nawabalavu, Wasea Daroko and Joseva Rauga each scored a try against Japan while Timoci Meya scored three tries against USA along with Alipate Qoro and Joseva Rauga.

France led Fiji 10-7 before Fiji took the lead 12-10 but the French had the final say to win the match 17-12. Uluiviti and Semi Tubacule touched down for Fiji.
