Fiji Shadow to face Tabadamu in Marist 7s final
March 27, 2021 4:10 pm
A Kitione Taliga conversion on the stroke of full-time saved the Fiji Shadow side in their Fiji Bitter Sapphire Marist 7s semifinal clash against Raiwasa Taveuni.
The national side was trailing 12-7 with seconds remaining when Jerry Tuwai stepped his way past a Taveuni defender before diving over the try-line.
However, the scores were locked at 12-all and many fans wished the match could go into extra time but Olympic gold medalist Taliga who came off the bench calmly slotted the conversion for the 14-12 win.
Taveuni never gave the shadow national side a chance to play their natural game.
Last night Fiji Shadow beat Raiwasa Taveuni 7-5.
Meanwhile, Fiji will face defending champions Tabadamu in the final at 6:30 pm.
Tabadamu defeated Police Blue 10-7 in the second semi-final.
