South Africa win the Las Vegas Sevens - Weekend summary

The South African Sevens team beat Fiji 24-14 in the Cup Final of the Las Vegas Sevens, with their speed and agility too much to handle for the bigger Fijians. This video features highlights of the top teams in action, as well as the final.

New Zealand and England had been considered favourites for the tournament but were knocked out by Fiji and South Africa respectively. Last years winners, Samoa, were beaten at the quarter final stage by rivals Fiji.

Cecil Afrika was key for the South Africans in the final, helping them get to 19-0 up in just six minutes. Fiji fought back to make it 19-14, but another try to Bernardo Botha 3 minutes from time took the game away from them for a memorable South African win.

"I think it's awesome, and especially for a young player like Paul Jordaan, to come on board and win a tournament on his first tour, those are the kind of memories that we would like to build," said Blitzbokke coach Paul Treu.

"For all the youngsters back at home, hopefully it's going to be an inspiration to them, that anything is possible. They just have to keep working harder and give themselves a chance."

Halfway through the series, England are still tied with New Zealand at the top of the table, followed by Fiji and Samoa (also tied), and then South Africa in fifth position.

The HSBC Sevens World Series moves to Hong Kong next, on March 25-17.
