Mesulame Kunavula of Fiji fights for the ball with Billy Odhiambo of Kenya during the gold medal game at Canada Sevens, the Sixth round of the HSBC Sevens World Series at the BC Place stadium Centre on March 11, 2018 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Oscar Ouma led Kenya's break at the stroke of the half time to score the first try with Samuel Oliech adding the conversion for a 7-0 lead.

Fiji came back in the second half looking much better and scored three more tries to all but seal their second title of the season and move to the second place in the IRB rankings with 101 points, eight points behind South Africa.

Three converted tries was enough to beat New Zealand as England went ahead through 19-year-old Ryan Olowofela and never let go of the lead in a 21-17 win.

Kenya had reached the semis with a 12-0 quarter-final win over England, their first over that side since 2011.

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.

Canada gave the home crowd much to cheer about, opening their account with a 19-19 draw against Australia and a narrow 28-21 loss to Las Vegas champions the United States in the last play of the second half.

Fiji and Kenya met the last time in the final during Singapore Sevens in 2016 where Kenya claimed its maiden victory, beating the Fijians 30-7. Fiji grabbed the kickoff for its first possession of the match and Josua Vakurunabili dashed from halfway for a try that leveled the scores.

Fiji signalled their intentions for the day with a 43-7 quarter-final thrashing of Argentina.

The next tournament beings in Hong Kong on April 6.
