South Africa beat Fiji to win London 7s Underline 23 May, 2011
The Digicel Fiji 7s team bow out as runners-up at the London 7s.
South Africa beat Fiji 24-14 to win the Emirates Airline London Sevens at Twickenham on a day which also saw New Zealand crowned 2010/11 HSBC Sevens World Series champions with one tournament remaining. 

After going 14-0 ahead within four minutes of the kick-off, Digicel Fiji eventually succumbed to the greater scrummaging power of the Springboks as Paul Treu’s men closed the game out. A crucial midfield switch for Fiji, when there was space on the wing, was probably the turning point in the second half. 

Despite the loss fans, who tweeted their opinions, reckon it to have been a great effort from a talented squad who never stopped entertaining: 

“Your guys smashed New Zeeland... Should be proud as well!!” - @RugbyFifteen 

“Got to watch most of the match...your an advert for Fiji Rugby.7s so dynamic. Good game.” - @Lynsm7 

“Thanks boys, we will be back to build on the positives, new boys looked good, vinaka and god bless.” - @Fijimafia650 

“Congratulations are in-order to your team . . Well deserved play against New Zealand.” - @Collyncee 


It is South Africa’s second Cup title of the season and lifts them to third in standings with 116 points, ensuring the race for second place behind New Zealand will be a four-way battle in Scotland next weekend with England (121), Samoa (112) and Fiji (110). 

The London Sevens set a new Series record of 100,094 crowd across the two days, the other finals saw Samoa beat Australia to take the Plate, Scotland overcome Kenya to win the Bowl and hosts England beat Portugal to claim the Shield. 

The final round of the World Series takes place on 28-29 May, the Emirates Airline Edinburgh Sevens at Murrayfield.
