The Fiji Airways 7s side has gone to the top of the World Series table.

This was after they defeated Australia in the final of the London 7s this morning.

Fiji thrashed the Aussie 7s by 43-7 in the final as the national side retain their London 7s title for the second year in a row.

Aminiasi Tuimaba scored a hat-trick in the final and he did it in the first half.

Vilimoni Botitu also touched down in the first half as they led 24 nil.

Australia started the second spell with a converted try to Joe Pincus but that was the only points they managed against a fired up Fiji side.

Josua Vakurunabili made sure to put the result beyond doubt after scoring from a lineout mistake by Australia 5 metres out from their own try line.


A great defensive effort by Fiji saw substitute Alasio Naduva going in for Fiji’s sixth try.

Naduva was still trying to catch his breath when Vakurunabili sent him to the try line again for his second try straight after the restart.

Ratu Meli Derenalagi was named the Player of the Final following another solid performance.

Head Coach Gareth Baber says they had to work hard for the win especially in the first half.

Baber adds they now move to Paris with an advantage but the job is not yet done.

The national coach also thanked the fans in Fiji and around the world for the tremendous support.

The USA 7s team won Bronze after beating France 31-14.
