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.
