Olympic men’s cham­pi­ons Fiji and women’s gold medal­ists Aus­tralia proved their class once again as they claimed the Ocea­nia Rugby Sevens ti­tles. Play­ing on home turf in Fiji, the Pa­cific Is­lan­ders beat Samoa 28-19 in the men’s fi­nal to fin­ish un­beaten at the tour­na­ment. Samoa had bat­tled back to within two points of Fiji with min­utes re­main­ing but the hosts went the length of the field for the de­ci­sive try. Olympic women’s cham­pion Aus­tralia also fin­ished the tour­na­ment with­out a loss, beat­ing Fiji 31-0 in the fi­nal.
