The New Zealand Men’s Seven’s side has won the silver medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

New Zealand were beaten Fiji 27-12 in a pulsating final at Tokyo Stadium in Chofu.

Fiji led 19-12 at half time after a blistering start saw them score two tries in the first 3 minutes. However, New Zealand came back towards the end of the first half with a try right on half time.

In the second half New Zealand pressed hard and dominated possession early on. However, Fiji sealed the game with a superb try with 90 seconds remaining. The final act of the game was a penalty for Fiji to seal a monumental win for the Pacific nation.

Fiji become the first rugby team to win back to back Rugby Seven titles at the Olympics.

The result was New Zealand’s third medal at the Tokyo Games.
