He was lethal in the attack and defence for Fiji as he also dotted down twice in the match.

NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 11- The last time Kenya played Fiji in a Main Cup final at the World Rugby Sevens Series, it ended in Shujaa's first ever title at the Singapore Sevens in 2016.

South Africa claimed the bronze medal after a 29-7 thrashing of the US - who had opted to rest a whole host of stars.

In earlier quarterfinal action, defending series champions South Africa produced a stunning second-half comeback to pip Australia 24-19 and secure a semifinal matchup against the rampant Fijians.

England, Cup winners in Vancouver previous year, started their campaign and opened Pool B with a 36-5 win over Wales, which included three tries from Dan Norton.

Carlin Isles scored a try as US defeated New Zealand 17-0 in their quarterfinal of the Vancouver Sevens. "We are a very young side and winning here in Vancouver gives us something to fight for in the rest of the season".

Samuel Oliech then made another try but failed in conversion for what would be Kenya's last efoort but Fiji would answer that in similar fashion through Sevuloni Mocenacagi for a 12-12 tie at the break.

It was an even contest throughout the opening seven minutes with neither side seriously testing the try line, until Oscar Ouma latched onto the ball in space and broke England's defensive line for a 0-7 half-time lead.

Their match with Kenya, similarly unbeaten in the first two rounds with a 14-7 win over France and a 43-0 victory over Spain, was a group decider.

Three tries in the first seven minutes put New Zealand on the road to victory over the Blitzboks.

Standing between New Zealand and a place in the semi-finals are the United States, the Las Vegas winners who were second-place finishers in Pool A behind Australia.
