Fijiana to play Australia in Olympics quarter-final

The Fijiana 7s team will play defending champions Australia in the second quarter-final of the Tokyo Olympics tonight.

They had beaten the Australian team in one of their two games in the Oceania 7s last month.

Fiji booked their spot in the quarter-final after beating Brazil 41-5 earlier today.

Reapi Uluinasau was the star for the Fijiana as she scored four tries.

She is the first rugby player to score 4 tries in one match in the Olympics.

Brazil scored first through Bianca Silva as they took a 5-0 lead but it was all Fiji after that.

Alowesi Nakoci got Fiji’s first try after the Fijiana started an attacking move from inside their own 22 metre line as Fiji led 7-5.

Uluinasau who scored a try just after 14 seconds yesterday, got Fiji’s second try as we led 14-5.

Uluinasau then got Fiji’s third try just before half-time as we led 19-5.

The Fijiana 7s team got their fourth try from Ana Maria Naimasi to lead 24-5.

Uluinasau then got another two tries before Lusiana Likuceva scored the final try for Fiji for our 41-5 win over Brazil.

Fiji plays Australia at 9 tonight.
