Sweet revenge for Fiji

Sweet revenge for Fiji

Sunday 27/11/2011
It was sweet revenge for the Digicel Fiji 7s team after they demolished New Zealand 26-12 in the Gold Coast 7s final in Australia.

Fiji outscored New Zealand four tries to two in a pulsating final.

New Zealand earlier beat Fiji in pool play 28-5 but Fiji came out firing and outsmarted the Kiwis in the final.

Fiji started strongly in the final after captain Setefano Cakau scored in the third minute of the first half but New Zealand’s king pin Tomasi Cama Junior cancelled the lead after scoring two successive tries to lead the first half 12-7.

Three unanswered tries by Fiji in the second half to Joeli Lutumailagi, Emosi Vucago and Watisoni Votu were enough to seal the much awaited win.

Osea Kolinisau said divine intervention was the key to their success and they dedicated the win to their diehard fans.
