If it needs anymore evidence that this year’s series isn’t short of surprises, than the Singapore Sevens were the right occasion to prove it. More than 45,000 people turned up to the new tournament destination on Saturday and Sunday and witnessed a tournament full of unexpected outcomes.
A sensational Kenya won the tournament beating series leader Fiji 30-7 to secure their first-ever tournament win. Kenya’s inspirational captain Collins Injera, named fully deserved player of the final, scored twice in the final.
Despite the loss in the final Fiji extend their lead at the top of the series to eight points with two rounds remaining in Paris and London. South Africa who lost to Fiji in the semi final, but won the third place play off against Argentina moves to the second position in the table.
In the other competitions, Samoa won the Plate final against New Zealand 26-21. Samoa last beat New Zealand in 2012.
Scotland won the Bowl in the final against the USA 14-10.
Russia won their third consecutive Shield trophy, beating Wales 24-7 in the final.
The series moves to Europe for the remaining two tournaments in Paris on 13th May and to London a week later.
