The Fiji Airways men’s 7s side showed another classic performance in the Cup semifinal beating South Africa 29-7 in Hamilton.

Kalione Nasoko made an early break in the first minute of play and ran over the try line to give Fiji a 7-0 lead.

Former captain Jerry Tuwai created a gap for Fiji, allowing Aminiasi Tuimaba to score their second try of the match.

Kyle Brown was yellow carded for a dangerous tackle which gave Vilimoni Botitu a chance  to extend Fiji’s lead 19-0 at the breather.

Fiji 7s coach Gareth Baber reminded the players at half time to keep pressuring the Blitzboks.

“Now we keep the pressure. Squeeze them to get everything they can out of it. We going to win the ball after kick off and keep the ball and keep the pace up, go straight back and that’s what is killing them.”

The Fijian side did not end there as they kept attacking and gave way for Waisea Nacuqu to add their fourth try.

Fiji put on a stunning defensive line which denied the Blitzboks any chance of scoring a try.

Selvyn Davis then opened a try for South Africa later on but Fiji replied in the last minute from a try through Tuimaba making it his seventh in the tournament.

Fiji will meet USA in the cup final at 7.10 tonight.

USA defeated New Zealand 17-7 in the second semifinal.
