The Team Fiji rugby sevens team lost out the  gold medal playoff going down to Samoa 14=7 in the Cup final at the Pacific Mini Games in Port Vila, Vanuatu last night.

Fiji’s downfall was individualism, poor ball handling and tackling.

It went wrong from the first minute for Fiji after Leo Naikasau was yellow carded for dangerous tackle.

Samoa capitalized scoring two tries which were both converted to lead 14-0 at halftime.

Fiji managed to score through team captain Alosio Naduva.

Samoa defended the title after beating Fiji 31-12 in the final of the 2013 Pacific Mini Games in Wallis & Futuna.
