Cape Town - The South African Sevens rugby team have been knocked out of the Glasgow Sevens after losing 15-0 to Fiji in a tense quarter-final encounter at a damp Scotstoun Stadium on Sunday.

Fiji went into the half-time break leading 7-0 after Semi Kunatani's converted try.

Neil Powell's men would fall further behind as Vatemo Ravouvou converted a penalty with under five minutes left in the match.

The tie would be beyond the Blitzbokke's reach when Savenaca Rawaca ran over in the corner to seal Fiji's path into the semi-finals and with it, keep their hopes of capturing the overall lead in the World Series, currently occupied by South Africa.


South Africa: 0

Fiji: 15 - Tries: Semi Kunatani; Conversions: Vatemo Ravouvou; Penalty: Ravouvou
