Reigning HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series champions and Olympic gold medallists Fiji were one of four teams to maintain a 100 per cent win record on day one of the men’s Dubai Sevens as they marched into the Cup quarter-finals.


The Pacific islanders took a major step towards retaining their Dubai Sevens title with three wins in Pool A over Wales, Argentina and Canada, providing some thrilling rugby at the opening round of the world series.

They will face France in the last eight and will be joined by three other unbeaten sides from day one as South Africa, England and Australia all shone bright in the Dubai sun. England will tackle Scotland with Australia facing Wales and South Africa up against New Zealand in what is set to be a mouth-watering encounter.
South Africa, series runners-up for four years in a row, put their stamp on Pool B with victories over Scotland, USA and Uganda. World Rugby Sevens Player of the Year Seabelo Senatla also showed his quality with six tries on day one.
