Fiji wins 4th straight Hong Kong rugby 7s tournament

Fiji wins 4th straight Hong Kong rugby 7s tournament

Muller du Plessis scored a hat-trick as the Blitzboks beat Spain 38-5 in the Cup quarter-finals of the Hong Kong Sevens on Sunday.

Famed for a party atmosphere nearly unrivaled in the world of sport, Fiji enjoys the annual trip to Hong Kong more than most.

After being hammered 50-7 by Fiji in their final pool game on Saturday, New Zealand looked a completely different outfit against the US.

The Pacific island is still reeling from the devastating impact of Cyclone Josie last week.

Making an appearance in the Hong Kong semis for the first time, Kenya was drawn against third-placed New Zealand while South Africa faced Fiji in the other semi-final match. Native media reported 4 individuals had been killed, whereas hundreds of properties have been flooded.

Tries from Billy Odhiambo and Oscar Ouma put factors on the board for Kenya after the break, however Fiji's early lead proved insurmountable.

"We were clinical and accurate in what we did", said Fiji coach Gareth Baber.

Kenya maintains their position seven with 81 points with three legs remaining to the end of the HSBC Sevens Series while Fiji retains their second position with 123 points after seven rounds.

Captain Seremaia Tuwai, speaking after today's final in the Hong Kong Stadium, said: "I'd like to thank my boys for the team effort and thank the Kenyan team for a good game".

South Africa claimed third place in the Hong Kong Sevens with a 29-7 win over New Zealand.

With Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 just over 100 days away, the seedings for the tournament will be confirmed on Wednesday as excitement builds for the competition in San Francisco on July 20-22.

Fiji's consideration will now be centered on additional glory when the group heads to the Commonwealth Video games on Australia's Gold Coast.
