Samoa win Gold in Rugby Sevens at Pacific Mini-Games with victory over Fiji in final
11 sept. 2013 -

The Fiji sevens team -was made to realize that you need more than just prayers to win at an international meet as Samoa thumped Fiji 31-12 in the final of the rugby sevens at the Pacific Mini Games this afternoon.

Samoa scored four unanswered tries to lead 24-0 in the first half.

After the Donasio Ratubuli got one back but soon after Samoa pounced on a loose ball which Fiji players were standing and watching to score under the post.

Captain Benito Masilevu then scored the last try of the game.

Fijiís downfall was individualism, ball handling, poor form in set pieces and poor tackling. It seemed that a Samoan player on average broke at least one tackle before being brought down. Fiji also fatigued as they had brought only nine players. It was a limp way for Alfereti Dere to end his reign as coach of the Fiji 7s squad. The FRU are expecting to announce the new coach in the next week.
