Saturday, March 03, 2018

Update: 12:55PM THE Fiji Airways national 7s team kick-started its 2018 Las Vegas 7s on a high note thumping Russia 38-0 in its opening game at Sam Boyd Stadium.

Flyer Eroni Sau stamped his mark early in the competition scoring a brace of tries, while Amenoni Nasilasila, Vatemo Ravouvou, Jerry Tuwai and Josua Vakurunabuli scored one each.

Nasilasila converted three tries while Ravouvou converted his own try.

Impact player Vasikali Mudu also made his presence felt when he unleashed one of his trademark bone-crunching tackles leaving his opponent in agony on the ground at the stroke of fulltime.
