2018 USA 7s: Fiji wins bronze

Maciu Malo in Las Vegas
Monday, March 05, 2018

Update: 2:28PM THE Fiji Airways national 7s team bounced back from their cup semifinal loss to USA to beat South Africa 26-22 for the bronze medal playoff.

Playing with only 12 men after the one-match suspended of Vasikali Mudu didn't deter the side from giving their best to down the Springboks.

Mudu was cited after a tackle he made against USA in the semi final.

Fiji scored four tries with captain courageous Jerry Tuwai dotting down twice while Alasio Naduva and Paula Dranisinukula scoring a try each.

The Springboks also scored four tries but they failed to convert three which made the difference.

Fiji maintains its third spot in the overall HSBC World Rugby 7s series and is only seven points away from New Zealand who is in second spot.

Coach Gareth Baber said the target was to keep improving on the field and also on the points table.

The side departs for the Vancouver 7s tomorrow.
