Gutsy Fijians Top Pool C

Fiji topped Pool C of the USA 7s in Las Vegas after edging Argentina 15-12 in the last pool game yesterday.

Despite their loss to Samoa in their opening match, Fiji bounced back to thrash France 42-12 and then went on to beat a resilient Argentinean side.

Savenaca Rawaca kick started the first half  with a try in the second minute of the game, 5-0.

Fiji was on point with their defence and playing with confidence shutting down Argentina when they had the ball.

In the fifth minute Seremaia Tuwai broke through  the defence to score the second try with Ravouvou failing to make the conversion.

Halftime: Fiji 10-0 Argentina

Argentina finally managed to break the Fiji defence with a try Nicolas Menendez, 10-5.

Fiji replied with Rawaca scoring his second try to extend the lead 15-5.

Applying pressure, Fiji won a few turnovers  preventing Argentina from scoring.

But a late try from Rodrigo Etchart and successful conversion by Joaquin Riera was not enough to seal a win against Fiji
