Fiji to meet Japan in quater-final
April 4, 2015 7:20 pm
The Vodafone Fiji team will meet hosts Japan in the first quarter-final of the Tokyo 7s this afternoon.
Fiji thumped England 33-19 in its last pool match last night and finished top of its pool with three wins after earlier recording wins against Wales 19-10 and Hong Kong 35-14.
The first quarter-final will be played at 2.20pm, while at 2.42pm, South Africa meets Scotland, France and England clash at 3.04pm and the last cup quarter-final sees New Zealand play Canada.
Fiji’s major downfall yesterday was copping yellow cards and there were three in total, one each in the three pool matches.
Also forward Pio Tuwai copped an injury in the last pool match, but coach Ben Ryan is confident the giant forward will recover for the games today.
The semi-finals will be played at 6.22pm, while the final starts at 9pm.
