The Fiji Team won the Hong-Kong Rugby Sevens, last Sunday, beating New-Zealand 35-28 in final. This is the 13th titles for the Fijians in Hong-Kong, a record.

"We dedicate this to the families of the boys (nickname of the players), to Miti and his family, to victims of the recent floods in Fiji, our peacekeepers, inmates around the country, patients in all our hospitals and all our die-hard fans," said the coach Alivereti Dere.

Thanks to this victory, Fiji is now only 2 points from New-Zealand, wich still leads the competition (111 points).

The next big game is this week-end, with the Japan Sevens. Let’s hope the boys will shine again!
