Samoa come back from 26-7 down against Fiji to win an incredible Cup final at the HSBC Paris Sevens
Samoa beat Fiji 29-26 to win their first Cup of the 2015/16 HSBC World Rugby Sevens with a stunning second-half comeback in Paris.
Fiji dominated the opening 10 minutes at a jam-packed Stade Jean Bouin, with tries from Isake Katonibau, Leone Nakarawa and from Jerry Tuwai putting Ben Ryan's side 21-0 up with half-time looming close.
Belgium Tuatagaloa clawed one back for Samoa, before Tuwai added another, making it 26-7 at half time.
However after a rousing team talk from head coach Damian McGrath, Samoa began to fight back in the second half, with two tries from Mealoi closing the gap to 26-17 with just over four minutes remaining.
Siaosi Asofolau kept the momentum going for Samoa and in the dying seconds captain Faalemiga Selesele finished off the match to give Samoa a historic win.
