Fijiana bows out

Josefa Makaba In Sydney, Australia
Sunday, January 28, 2018

AFTER day one's unexpected result from the Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s team losing all its pool matches, the team bounced back to qualify for Challenge trophy playoff after beating Japan 19-10.

Asinate Savu, Ana Maria Naimasi and Litia Naiqato scored a try each with Rusila Nagasau converting two.

But their quest to amend their mistakes from day one was short-lived as England spoiled the Iliesa Tanivula-coached side's chances with a 29-10 win.

They bowed out of the Sydney 7s earlier yesterday with only a win against Japan.

Against England, Fiji produced 10 points from two tries to Lavenia Tinai and Miriama Naiobasali.

The Ana Maria-skippered side sits on fourth with 66 in the overall points standing with New Zealand leading the charge with 106 followed by Australia 100 while Canada recorded 98.

Meanwhile, the women's 7s powerhouse Australia demolished Russia 31-0 in one of the semi-finals of the cup while New Zealand crushed Canada 26-0. They will meet in the final.
