Fiji won Pool C at the World Rugby Sevens Series Vancouver stop beating Spain France and Kenya and will face Argentina in the quarter-finals

Fiji exploded for 19 unanswered points in the second half to race away to a 31-12 victory over Kenya Sunday in the final of the World Rugby Sevens Series in Vancouver, Canada.

With Fiji leading 12-7 going into the second-half, it was Kenya who responded first with a try from Eden Agero within 19 seconds. South Africa leads the series with 109 points followed by Fiji with 101 points.

Kenya had won only once before in four finals appearances, beating Fiji in Singapore past year.

Joe Ravouvou's try with 90 seconds remaining meant it sat 21-17 in the closing stages, however England held on to end a seven-game losing streak against the men in black.

"I'm speechless, really proud of the boys", Fiji captain Jerry Tuwai said after the final.

Skipper Oscar Ouma landed a last minute try as Kenya shocked the USA 24-19 to reach the main Cup final at Canada Sevens at BC Place, Vancouver on Monday morning. "All the teams now are very hard to play against, not like before".
