THE Fiji 7s team settled for a silver medal in the rugby competition at the 2017 Pacific Mini Games at the Korman Stadium in Port Vila, Vanuatu on Saturday night.

The Saiasi Fuli-coached side went down to Samoa 14-7 in the final.

The Fijian players missed a number of scoring opportunities in the match.

Fiji also committed a number of handling errors which disrupted their flow of the game.

Suva winger Alosio Naduva scored Fiji's lone try in the final.

"It is disappointing to lose, but we had 10 opportunities to score tries and we didn't take it and that is the reality of the game," Fuli said.

"We will go back and continue the hard work on our development."

Meanwhile, Fiji defeated Tonga 41-7 in the semi-final earlier in the day.
