Samoa win London Sevens

9:44 am on 26 May 2008

Samoa beat Fiji 19-14 to win the Emirates Airline London Sevens title, their third ever World Series Cup title.

Lolo Lui scored a hat trick of tries to give Samoa an early 19-0 lead and although Fiji crossed just before the break through Timoci Matanavou and then in the second half through Sailosi Rabonaqica it proved too little too late.

Nasoni Roko's late try to equalise was ruled out by referee David Keane after a late tackle in the build-up.
