Fiji defeated Argentina 17-12 in its last pool match as Joseva Talacolo starred with his match winning try.

But the result was not enough to save the Fijian side having beaten Uruguay 52-0 but then suffered a 24-7 defeat to New Zealand in their second match, Fiji needed to beat Los Pumas 7s by 10 points to progress, but they fell five points short of their target.
