  • New Zealand's Kurt Baker puts the fend on against Japan at the Singapore Sevens

The Blitzboks had trailed Fiji, the Singapore Sevens defending champions, 19-0 at half-time.

The win takes South Africa to 121 points on the World Series Sevens standings, still in fourth place behind New Zealand (130), Fiji (142) and leaders U.S. (145).

Finishing second in the Singapore 7s last night, the Fiji Airways 7s team takes charge of Pool B of the next tournament in London.

Fiji cracked under that pressure and gave away a penalty inside their own 22-metre line, which Selvyn Davids converted to give his side an impressive come from behind win.

"It was very much an up-and-down game for us", South Africa coach Neil Powell said after the match.

As you might expect, the Blitzboks bench was feeling ALL THE FEELS as the clock ticked over.

Fiji's Aminiasi Tuimaba scored a try and received a yellow card during the Singapore final.

However instead of crumbling, Fiji would somehow take the upper hand despite their numerical disadvantage, as Livai Ikanikoda put his side ahead before halftime, taking a 12-5 lead into the break. They found some of their pizazz to beat England in semi-finals and looked set for a monster win over the Blitzboks.

South Africa then swept aside Samoa in the quarter-final before another dominant display against the US in the semi-final to set up a final against the Islanders.
