Fijiana  Finishes 7th

The Telecom Fijiana side finished in 7th place in Dubai after defeating Spain 31-14 yesterday.

The Chris Cracknell-coached side lost to France in the Cup quarterfinal and later went down to New Zealand in the Plate semifinal 33-14.

Fiji found themselves facing New Zealand and in the opening half found life hard-going.

Fijiana showed a spot of character pulling themselves back from 21-5 down but the match was about the world champions and Portia Woodman scored her 100th HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series try.

Head Coach Chris Cracknell tweeted he was proud of his players performance.

“Super proud to coach this group.

“Great weekend, lots learnt and progress to be made. Congrats to Australia on the win,” Cracknell said.
