Fiji, chasing back-to-back tournament wins following their victory at the Sydney Sevens last month, looked to be on course for the title after storming into an early lead at the Dignity Health Sports Park. The South Pacific islanders powered into the lead with Vilimoni Botitu scoring the opening try in the first minute. Sevuloni Mocenacagi extended Fiji’s lead before Napolioni Bolaca made it 19-0 with South Africa looking ragged. But Stedman Gans pulled a try back for South Africa on the stroke of half-time to make it 19-7 at the break. Selvyn Davids then scored soon after the restart to cut the Fiji lead to 19-12. However a sweeping length-of-the-field attack from Fiji which ended with Jerry Tuwai dotting down in the corner restored the islanders’ 12-point cushion at 24-12 with just over a minute remaining. South Africa rallied again though and Chris Day’s try made it 24-17. With the seconds ticking down, South Africa then waived the conversion attempt in order to take a quick restart and the decision paid off when they regained possession from the kick-off.last_img read more
