The Fijiana 7s team will meet Canada at 7.04am in the gold semi-final after beating Australia 19-12 in the 22nd Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The Women's semi-finals will start at 6.42am with New Zealand facing Australia.

The Fijiana 7s team led 12-0 in the first half and held their line of defence until the last minute to win the game.

Rusila Nagasau scored the first try with Raijeli Daveua and Sese Donu scoring a try each and Viniana Riwai got two of the three conversions in.

Reapi Uluinasau was sin-binned and gave a chance to Australia to capitalise with another try but that was not enough.

They defeated Scotland 31-12 in their first game and thrashed South Africa 41-0 in their second match.

In other results Australia hammered Scotland 50 –0, New Zealand belted Sri Lanka 60 – 0, Canada beat England 26 – 19 and Scotland beat South Africa 33 – 12 and New Zealand beat England 38-7.

The women’s medal semi-finals will begin at 6:42am tomorrow, and the bronze medal match kicks off at 7:20am Monday followed by the gold medal final at 8:04am.
