HAMILTON 7s: Fiji vs NZ semi-final

MAIKELI SERU in Hamilton, New Zealand
Sunday, February 04, 2018

Update: 12:47PM THE Fiji Airways 7s players have been challenged to lift up their play when they progress into the semi-finals of the Hamilton 7s in New Zealand this afternoon.

Coach Gareth Baber has told the players to cut back on mistakes, keep an eagle eye on the ball and make possessions stick if they want to beat hosts New Zealand.

The winner will be remembered as the first champion of the Hamilton 7s which is part of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.

"We have to be on our guard and pounce on every ball and defend well against New Zealand because they will be physical," Baber said after the quarter-final victory.

Fiji beat Samoa on the death 12-10 while NZ ousted England 19-12.

Australia currently leads Kenya 33-0 in the third quarter.
