Napolioni Bolaca and Semi Kunatani were ruthless in the second half against USA and injected much needed fire power to help Fiji get the 19-17 win in the cup quarters of the Toulouse 7s.

Fiji was down 12-0 at half-time and Bolaca and Kunatani were introduced in the second spell.

Bolaca was clinical in defence where he made a try saving tackle in the final minute of the game while Kunatani was instrumental in winning breakdown battles.

Our top rugby commentator, Antonio Rahiman says coach Ben Gollings is sending impact players at the right time.

Fiji turned the tables and put in a more polished performance in the second half which saw Josua Vakurunabili, Elia Canakaivata and Kaminieli Rasaku scoring a try each.

Fiji will play Samoa in the second cup semi-final at 12.36am tomorrow while Ireland will take on France at 12.14am in the first semi-final.

The final will be played at 4.26am tomorrow.

In other quarterfinals this morning, France beat Australia 21-19, Samoa defeated England 26-24 and Ireland beat Argentina 14-0.

Meanwhile, South Africa and New Zealand were bundled out in the pool stages.

New Zealand lost their final pool match to Australia while South Africa were beaten by Samoa and Ireland in their pool matches.
