The Vodafone Fijian 7s halfback Amenoni Nasilasila weaved his magic wand as they romped to a 26-21 win over South Africa in the first Cup semi-final of the Singapore 7s last night.

Trailing 14- 21 with less than three minutes to go, Nasilasila chipped the ball behind the tight South African defence and sped past Branco Du Preez to dive over for a try, which was converted by Osea Kolinisau as they drew level 21-21.

Right on fulltime, the Vodafone Fijians won the kick-off and Emosi Mulevoro set-up Nasilasila who weaved his way past the defence before floating a pass out wide to an unmarked Alivereti Veitokani who dived over for the winning try.

Kenya booked their spot in the Cup final when they edged out Argentina 15-12 in the second semi-final.
