The Fiji 7s team demolished Samoa 45-5 in the first Vancouver 7s Cup semi-final and will face Argentina in the final at 12:58.

Fiji started with Josua Vakurunabili, Tevita Dagunu, Elia Canakaivata, Jerry Tuwai, Iowane Raturaciri, Kaminieli Rasaku and Vuiviawa Naduvalo.

Olympic gold medalist Vakurunabili put Fiji ahead with a try after three minutes after a patient buildup despite Samoa’s structured defense.

Fiji’s defense was tested a minute later but they were rewarded with a counterattack inside their 22-yard line with Naduvalo running for their second.

Naduvulo got his second a minute later thanks to brilliant work from the restart for a 19-0 lead.

Just when many thought that was enough, Vakurunabili raced again for his second and fourth for the team after being set up by captain Daugunu for a 24-0 halftime lead.

The Samoans who were in impressive form in Vancouver were shocked by Fiji’s performance as the national team mastered restarts and left their opponents guessing.

Rasaku showed his strength when he ignored two defenders to score another try before Samoa’s Ioina Sione scored his first try.

Debutant Tira Welagi scored his first try of the World Series when he ran through the defense before Filipo Bukayaro had the last laugh.

Meanwhile, in another semi-final, Argentina beat Australia 24-12.
