Fiji showed their respect for New Zealand before the match and those affected by the Christchurch tragedy with a special gift at the Hong Kong 7s. Fijian captain Paula Dranisinukula’s two incredible offloads created tries for Aminiasi Tuimaba and Vilimoni Botitu. A third try from Livai Ikanikoda extended their lead to 19-0 at the half time mark.
According to the FBC News, Apenisa Cakaubalavu then extended Fiji’s lead 24-0 before Joe Ravouvou scored New Zealand’s consolation try. New Zealand took their offloading game to a new level and their defensive pressure forced Clark Laidlaw’s side into uncharacteristic errors.
