Fiji write history in Hong Kong 7s


Fiji became the first side to win five consecutive finals in a single tournament after beat France to retain the Hong Kong 7s for the fifth time in a row.

Prior to this tournament, Fiji had won Hong Kong 7s title 18 times. They had won the last four tournaments with the latest being 24-12 in the 2018 finals.

Vilimoni Botitu scored their opening try which was converted for a 7-0. The try was a result of an offload from Aminiasi Tuimaba. Botitu returned the favour by setting up Aminiasi Tuimaba who crossed over for a converted try.

Josua Vakurinabili was then sent off to the sin-bin after a high tackle on Frenchman Gabin Villiere in a scoring position and the referee awarded a penalty try. France were also reduced to six men after Tavite Turaganibuli Veredamu was sent off too.

Fiji would however score the final converted try to win the title.
