Mike Friday leads USA past Kenya in Paris Sevens”

The two nations have gone back and forth all season and Fiji held just a two-point advantage over the U.S. heading into Paris, with a highly-anticipated semi-final match-up between the two, that Fiji won 33-17, deciding the outcome of the whole Series.

Fiji rushed to 12-0 on tries by Meli Derenalagi and Sevuloni Mocenacagi.

It was the semifinal win that mathematically clinched a fourth World Rugby Sevens title for Fiji, who will enter Tokyo as the favorites next year.

The Fiji Airways Men's national 7s team has won the HSBC World 7s series title after beating United States of America 33-14 in the semi-final of the Paris 7s.

Fiji's Jerry Tuwai, instrumental in both tries, then received a yellow card for a failed intercept, and the usa took advantage with a Carlin Isles try, moments after he mucked up one for running out of the in goal.

Jona Nareki scored New Zealand's sole first-half try on the stroke of halftime, while Regan Ware notched a second-spell brace and Dylan Collier also crossed as the Kiwis made the final score more respectable over the run home.

In their first two games in France, the Blitzboks overcame a gutsy effort by Wales (22-7) in their opener, before they turned a first-half scare into a quality second half outing to down Kenya 29-12.

US finishes in second place while New Zealand finishes in third place.

While no one would have blamed them for already turning their attention to the celebrations, Fiji showed their class with a three-try first-half blitz, opening up a 21-point gap that proved too big a mountain for New Zealand to climb.

New Zealand defeated South Africa 33-7 in a one-sided semifinal.
