In what normally would have been a cup final matchup, the number one ranked Fiji faced the might All Blacks Sevens in the Quarterfinals.

In typical fashion, the match-up was hotly contested and found Fiji controlling the ball for the better half of the match.

An early score by Fiji put them up 5-0, which was countered by a New Zealand try and successful conversion to go ahead 7-5 going into halftime.

Throughout the second half, Fiji was able to hold-off a frustrated New Zealand team to come out on top with a 12-7 win.

The win eliminated the All Blacks Sevens from medal contention and advances Fiji in its march towards winning the country’s first medal ever.
