It's bronze for the Blitzboks in Hong Kong

Fiji secured their fourth consecutive title at the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens after they beat Kenya 24-12 in the final.

Former All Black Roger Randle takes over as coach in Hong Kong and has named a squad featuring six players uncapped at world series level.

"The Hong Kong Sevens is like the World Cup in Fiji and four years in a row is like winning the World Cup", said Fiji captain Jerry Tuwai. They finished runners-up after losing 31-14 to China in the final.

Kenya faced Canada in the other match in Pool B, and they won comfortably against Canada despite conceding the first try.

Kenya replied immediately via veteran Collins Injera who raised 1300 world series points to put him in the top-10 on the all-time list.

Putin asserted that Russian partners would encourage Turkey's small- and medium-scale companies to participate in this project. The three leaders will discuss regional events, the ongoing war in Syria, and the relations between their countries.

It was an arm wrestle for much of the second half and New Zealand were hot on attack before Kenya pinched a vital turnover and Willie Ambaka Ndayara raced 90m for the clincher, 1min 40sec from fulltime.

Fiji's response was a super try.Amenoni Nasilasila, who has been electric all weekend, sliced through a weak Kenya decisive line and crossed the whitewash gallantly to hand it back to his team-mate Vatemo Ravouvou who touched down the ball for a 24-5 lead.

Having stormed to a 21-0 halftime advantage, they were always in control with U.S. only getting on the scoreboard in the final two minutes. Dewald Human added to the tally before Tone Ng Shiu scored New Zealand's only try on the stroke of half-time.

Oscar Ouma's superb try saving tackle to pull down Khan ensured the two sides remained at par, the skipper putting in a spirited run before pulling down the New Zealander a few metres off the try box.

In the second half, the Blitzboks continued where they left off with strong defence and scored two tries via Zain Davids and Muller du Plessis to claim third place with a 29-7 win.
