THE Fiji Airways Fiji 7s team began on a high defeating Kenya 22-5 in their opening pool C clash of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series Hong Kong 7s tournament at the So Kon Po Stadium.

Fiji led at the half time by 17-0 after tries by Aminiasi Tuimaba, Vilimoni Botitu, Jerry Tuwai with Livai Ikanikoda adding one conversion.

A scrappy start in the second half saw Kenya score their first points of the tournament through forward Jeff Olouch with the conversion missed.

Speed merchant Alasio Naduva had the last say of the game which was unconverted.

Fiji will play Australia in their next game at 5:13pm later today.
