Typical Fijian Flair - Hong Kong Sevens 1990

Typical Fijian Flair - Hong Kong Sevens 1990

This sensational last minute try by Fiji's Tomasi Cama wins them the cup at Hong Kong in 1990 against the All Blacks, which features a young Waisele Serevi.

It's widely regarded as one of the best Sevens tries of all time, considering how valuable a try it is, in the final.

Vesi Rauluni throws the wild pass to Waisele Serevi with the defence closing in. Serevi quickly taps it over his head to Noa Nadruku, who throws it between his legs to the flying Tomasi Cama who runs around All Black winger John Gallagher for a try between the sticks.

Cama is apparently a coach these days, but if anyone has any more info please let us know.

His son actually plays currently, ironically playing for the New Zealand Sevens team.

Cama is now coaching in China. He performed the cibi with Fiji team during their victory celebration at Hong Kong in 2012. Only Vesi Rauluni has passed away. The two brothers, Pauliasi Tabulutu and Alifereti Dere went on to coach the Fiji Team. Dere is the current coach of the Fiji Sevens team. Tabulutu now lives in the United States. Noa Nadruku went on to play rugby league with Canberra Raiders. He now resides in Australia. That is still the best try ever. It came after a line out when Dere, a prop, ran from behind to catch and tackle John Callagher an All Black winger, into touch. Vesi threw into the line out where Rasari tapped it down to Tabulutu who ran into the forwards and passed back to Vesi who threw a one handed pass to Serevi. That was a beaty of a try!
