Fiji went to this tournament having missed out on the men’s Series title by four points and had lost in the Commonwealth Games final to South Africa.
The team put that right in Cape Town, however, to end Ben Gollings’ first season as coach on a high and come away with a third RWC Sevens title – and first of those won outside of Hong Kong.
Wales were dispatched 29-5 in the round of 16 on Friday before Fiji overcame Pacific Island rivals Samoa 21-10 in a bruising quarter-final the following evening.
A 38-14 defeat of Australia in the semi-finals set up a showpiece match against defending champions, New Zealand. Fiji ran in five tries through five different scorers in the final to topple the All Blacks Sevens 29-12.
Stars of the show in Cape Town 🌟
