Fiji blow away NZ in World Series opener

8:57 am on 15 October 2012

Fiji have made a brilliant start to the international rugby sevens series, blowing away their traditional rivals New Zealand 32-14 on the Gold Coast.

The defending champions, smarting from their round robin loss to Australia, scored 6 tries to 2 in the final against a New Zealand team that included several newcomers, although captain DJ Forbes says they performed well below their usual standard.

The second round in Dubai isn't until the 30th of November.
