Voda­fone Fi­jian 7s bril­liance clinches ti­tle win over Samoa

Fiji Sun - - Front Page -

The Voda­fone Fi­jian 7sreps were a class above the rest of the field yes­ter­day at Suva’s ANZ Sta­dium. Their win over Pa­cific ri­vals Samoa in the Oceania 7s fi­nal last night now serves as a per­fect plat­form in their build-up to de­fend their World Rugby Sev­ens Series ti­tle. The Samoans were no push-over as they came back fight­ing in the sec­ond half. It took the bril­liant foot­work of gold medal Olympian, Ki­tione Taliga, to re­lieve the pres­sure from the Samoan on­slaught and seal the tiltle for Fiji. The win is a cause for cel­e­bra­tion fol­low­ing the Voda­fone Fly­ing Fi­jians 7-40 beat­ing from the Bar­bar­ians yes­ter­day morn­ing in Belfast, North­ern Ire­land. Also, our Tele­com Fi­jian women’s 7s lost to a ram­pag­ing Aus­tralian out­fit, also Olympic gold medal­lists.
