The Vodafone Fiji 7s has qualified for the quarterfinals of the Tokyo 7s after an unconvincing 35-14 win over Hong Kong.

Halfback Eminoni Nasilasila scored two of Fiji’s five tries with the other tries coming from Vatemo Ravouvou, Semi Kunatani and Isake Katonibau.

Fiji once again had a man in the sin-bin after Apisai Domolailai was disciplined for a late tackle.

Fiji will now battle England for top spot in Pool A at 8.30pm with the winner to face the top seed from Pool B in the quarterfinals tomorrow, which could be either New Zealand or Australia.
