Fiji has won the first two matches in the Rio Olympics rugby sevens event.

Fiji won their first match against Brazil 40- 12.

 

In their second game against Argentina, Fiji managed to hold Argentina to a tie, 7 – 7 at half-time.

Samisoni Viriviri was assisted off the field in what looked like an ankle injury a minute to half-time.

Our men had to work hard to get across the try line from a determined Argentinian side.

Kitione Taliga crossed over twice.
