Kenya won the HSBC Singapore Sevens in sensational fashion, beating Fiji 30-7 to lift a first ever Cup title

 

Collins Injera, named HSBC player of the final, scored twice in the final as his side blew the series leaders Fiji away with 20 unanswered first half points.

It was a fitting end to a sensational weekend of rugby sevens, with more than 45,000 people turning out at the National Stadium in Singapore.

Fiji’s place in the final after victory over South Africa in the semi final extended their lead at the top of the standings to eight points with two rounds remaining in Paris and London while the Blitzboks returned to second place having finished third after beating Argentina 28-0 in the third place play off which included a 50th career try for Kwagga Smith. “We are delighted about the event in Singapore,” said Philippe Bourdarias, General Manager Competitions for World Rugby.”Close to 50,000 people attended the event and the atmosphere was fantastic. The players were also delighted and enjoyed the local hospitality and we look forward to coming back next year. We would also like to congratulate and thank the Singapore Rugby Union for the organisation of a successful tournament.”
