2022 Vancouver Sevens

HSBC Sevens Series
Coach - Ben Gollings, Viliame Satala (Assistant)
Captain - Tevita Daugunu
record - 5-1
ranking - 2nd

The Fiji Sevens team head into their 4th event in the Series.
Tira Patterson made his Series debut when he came off the bench against Kenya. He scored his first try against Samoa.
Jeremaia Matana scored his first try on the Sevens Series, against Kenya.
Fiji are in Pool A alongside England, USA and Kenya.
Waisea Nacuqu scored a double against England taking him over 100 tries on the Series. The 6th Fiji Sevens player to do so.
He is now outright 6th all time (Fiji) for Tries, matches played, conversions and points scored taking him past Emosi Vucago.
Jerry Tuwai played match 300 on the series in the opener against England. The second Fijian to do so after Osea Kolinisau.
He has now played more matches on the Series than any other Fiji Sevens player.

Day 1
Fiji were white hot to start the tournament. Passing was crisp, handling was on point and the razzle was their from the opening. We have seen this before from Fiji and to be honest it usually goes wrong later in the tournament.
Day 2
A close win against France and a near perfect performance against Samoa. Again much of the same from Day 1 the team looked to be in their groove again.

Final
They started well but quickly were exposed defensively. Credit where it is due, Argentina executed their gameplan really well, starving Fiji of the ball.
Ineffective tackling ultimately costing Fiji any chance in the final. Argentina won their first Gold Medal match since 2009. Final score 10-29.

Conclusion
Despite finishing second that was a very polished performance during the tournament. Two tournaments now with Ben Gollings at the helm and the team are yet to concede a yellow or red card.
They are lacking a bit physically but are moving the ball really well.
A gold and silver medal in the past two weeks is the best of any side.

Our player of the tournament

Kaminieli Rasaku – He was a threat every single time he touched the ball. Such a powerful, balanced runner and despite his size he mixes it with the biggest men on the pitch. Rumours of Pro D2 Club Bayonne chasing his signature.
