The Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team ran away with a 31-5 win over Samoa in their pool opener of the Sydney 7s at the Allianz Stadium last night.

Spot on tackles and aggressive play in the breakdown areas were the hallmarks of the Fijian defence. Coach Gareth Baber kept on insisting to the players to keep up with their bone crushing tackles during the halftime break.

Playmaker Amenoni Nasilasila and Mesulame Kunavula dotted down tries in the first half as they led 14-5. In the second half it was tries from Josua Vakurinibili, Eroni Sau and Aloesi Naduva that sealed Samoa’s fate.

Today, Fiji take on Russia at 5.09pm and New Zealand at 8.42pm.
