Fiji won the restart and with time up Aminiasi Tuimaba attempted a kick and chase but the Blitzboks got to the ball first to clinch their second tournament victory of the season.

South Africa scored 20 unanswered second half points to deny Fiji back to back titles at the Singapore Sevens.

South Africa then swept aside Samoa in the quarter-final before another dominant display against the US in the semi-final to set up a final against the Islanders.

Down 0-19 at half-time, South Africa engineered a magical comeback to win 20-19 in what will be remembered as a final for the ages.

Fiji though, showed their class just minutes later, with Josua Vakurunabili leveling the scores with just three minutes gone.

Mais les Corbeaux de Lubumbashi avaient le mérite de ne pas tergiverser, eux qui se lançaient à l'assaut du but adverse. Au retour des vestiaires, le but de Kabala était ensuite refusé pour hors-jeu.

They scored a total of 7 tries.

Neil Powell's men took full advantage of the extra player as Ryan Oosthuizen dotted down a third try to see the sides separated by just two points (17-19) heading into the final minutes of the game.

South Africa's Selvyn Davids slotted the winning penalty in the Singapore final.

However instead of crumbling, Fiji would somehow take the upper hand despite their numerical disadvantage, as Livai Ikanikoda put his side ahead before halftime, taking a 12-5 lead into the break.
