Fiji Win Thanks To Samoa Yellow Card



Fiji recovered from 7-19 behind to beat Samoa 24-19 and claim the bronze medal at the Singapore 7s.

Samoa had beaten Fiji 7-28 on day one and looked set to win a first Series bronze medal final since Port Elizabeth in December 2013 as Va’a Apelu Maliko helped inspired his side into a 12-point lead.

However, tries from Iowane Teba and Joseva Talacolo levelled the scores before Tuna Tuitama received a late yellow card and Terio Tamani Veilawa scored his second try to confirm victory for Fiji.

The All Blacks 7s defeated Argentina 17-19 to extend their lead at the top of the HSBC World Rugby 7s Series 2023 table.
