Singapore Sevens: England beat USA 28-7 to win bronze medal

The Blitzboks needed a strong second-half performance if they were to claw their back into the tie.

Aminiasi Tuimaba, Napolioni Bolaca and Vilimoni Botitu scored tries for Fiji in the first half, two of which were converted by Bolaca, and the Islanders seemingly had one hand on the trophy after 14 minutes. Fiji also lost to Scotland and only just scraped through to the final.

Apenisa Cakaubalavu produced a try-saving tackle in the final minute only for Fiji to be penalised for offside as Selvyn Davids stepped up to slot the penalty goal and put South Africa in front 20-19.

The Fijians go into the London and Paris leg of the Series with a real chance of winning the overall title.

Meanwhile, newly crowned Singapore champion South Africa leads Pool A with Argentina, Canada, and Japan.

Samoa let a 12-0 lead slip in their Cup quarter final against South Africa.

South Africa then scored two tries in two minutes as Angelo Davids scored a second, while Fiji's Aminiasi Tuimaba was given a yellow card in the build-up.

England is pooled with New Zealand, Scotland and the unnamed 16th team in Pool C, while United States of America leads Pool D with Australia, Wales, and Spain.
