Samoa knocks over Fiji

An experienced Manu Samoa Sevens has got their Las Vegas Sevens campaign off to a flying start, knocking off Fiji, 28-24.

The win was built on an attitude of never say die after the Fijians looked like they were heading for a win.

But Samoa fought back in the dying seconds to steal the match, sending the crowd in Las Vegas and their fans back home to celebrate.

Samoa plays Argentina next.
