Scrappy start between the two sides with Canada knocking on in a good position. 0-0

First try of the tournament for Fiji, fine finish from Ravouvuou in the corner, conversion is missed, 5-0 Fiji.

Try for Fiji and a wonderful score! Length of the field stuff, all 7 players involved and Nasako finishes it under the posts, 12-0 after the conversion with 1:37 to half time.

Fiji showing the importance of defence in 7s rugby, Canada have not been able to get close to the try line.
