Fiji finishes 9th in Dubai 7s

Fiji finished ninth in Dubai 7s after beating Spain 31-7 at the Sevens Stadium on Saturday.

Spain had earlier thumped Fiji 33-19 in pool play and dashed their Cup quarterfinal hopes.

Fiji was a different side altogether in the 9th place final and scored two tries through Captain Josua Vakurunabili and Kaminieli Rasaku to lead 10-0 at halftime.

Iowane Raturaciri, Iowane Teba and Tevita Daugunu scored three more tries in the second half while Eduardo Lopez scored Spain's consolation try just before the final whistle.
