Fiji Obliterate Competition at Dubai7s

2069606_IPDNEWS

Fiji were on a war path at the Dubai 7s last weekend.  Of all the teams to face them on their road cup final, the All Blacks were the ones to be completely blown off the park.  44-0 will leave the Sevens All Blacks stinging perhaps more than any other team to lose in Round Two of the Sevens World Series.  Fiji defeated South Africa 29-17 in the final to claim their first Dubai Sevens title since 1998.

The only challenge facing Fiji at this moment in time is whether they can maintain the zone they found in Dubai when they hit the field in Port Elizabeth for Round Three on Saturday, December 7th.

New Zealand still hold a slight lead in first place in the Rugby World Sevens standings thanks to solid outings before they hit the Fiji roadblock.   However, South Africa will have a lot to play for on their home leg of the series with the passing of legendary activist and leader Nelson Mandela on December 5th.
