Fijians Warm Up

Vodafone Fijian 7s coach Ben Ryan is proud of his players’ performance after Day One of Sydney 7s at Allianz Stadium, Australia, yesterday.

The Fijians play Kenya in the second Cup quarterfinal at 12:57pm today.

The Osea Kolinisau-captained side scored three topping Pool C after defeating Argentina 19-14 in their final pool match.

Ryan tweets “tough last game, excellent @santygc Argentina. As always, v.proud of boys today. All  looking forward to the challenges tomorrow.”

Vatemo Ravouvou leads the most points scored table with 181 points and also tops the conversion table with 63 points. Ravouvou had 100 per cent conversions in their second game against France where he converted all seven tries.

The Fijians walloped Samoa in their opening match 31-0 and defeated France 49-5 in their second match.

Kolinisau was proud of the team’s defence work so far.

 

Fiji vs France

It was another magnificent performance displayed by the Fijians with offloads, winning kickoffs and ruthless defence. The team scored seven tries all converted by Saunaka native Vatemo Ravouvou.

Scrumhalf Seremaia Tuwai scored a double while Kolinisau and Savenaca Rawaca scoring a try each for the team to lead 28-0 at halftime.

The Fijians maintained consistency in the second half and executed their game plan well as Kolinisau, Viliame Mata and Ravouvou scoring a try each. France  score their try through  Arthur Retiere.

Fiji vs Argentina

It was close game so far for the team in the 2015-16 series.

A yellow card to Pio Tuwai late in the second half saw the Argentines bounce back with a try to tie the scores at 7-7 at halftime.

Fiji have been turning on the style with some great offloading but they just can’t shake a gutsy Argentina side

But eventually Semi Kunatani and Savenaca Rawaca scored a try each for Fiji in the second half to seal victory again. Argentina scored at fulltime through Axel Muller.
