Australia breaks Fiji hearts to win Hong Kong Sevens

This was perhaps the most hotly contested Hong Kong Sevens in history as two quarter-finals and one semi-final required extra time to separate the teams in highly competitive contests, before the closely fought bronze and gold medal finals.

  • Australia beat Fiji 20-17 with a last gasp try to win sensational Hong Kong Sevens title
  • France claim the bronze medal thanks to a 19-17 victory over Samoa
  • Return of Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens a resounding success with world class sevens played in front of a large and vibrant crowd
  • Hong Kong was the first of 11 rounds in the men’s 2023 World Series, the women’s Series starts with a combined event in Dubai on 2-3 December 2022
  • The 2023 Series is set to be the most competitive yet, with Paris 2024 Olympic qualification and Series relegation at stake
