The Fijiana 7s team finished in 8th position at the Hamilton 7s after losing 21-26 to Russia in the 7th place-off.

Fiji started the match well, with a try each from Aloesi Nakosi and Tokasa Seniyasi as they led Russia 14-7 at half time.

Russia came back firing in the second spell scoring three tries and a penalty try which resulted in a yellow card to Viniana Riwai for a high tackle.

Seniyasi scored her second try of the match in the last minute of the game but it was not enough to give them the win.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Men’s 7s team will play South Africa at 5.16pm  in the 9th place play-offs.
