The Fijiana 7s team have won their first Commonwealth Games silver medal after losing to Australia 22-7 in a heart breaking final this morning.

The Australia Women’s team capitalized on all possession they had to score three unanswered tries in the first half to take the lead 17-0.

Faith Nathan scored two tries for the Aussies while Madison Ashby scored their third try.

Australia started the second half strongly with a try from Madison Levi while Fiji’s try came in from Anamaria Naimasi and Sesenieli Donu.

Meanwhile the Fijiana finished fifth in the 2018 Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast.
