Last minute controversy as Samoa win the London Sevens

Last minute controversy as Samoa win the London Sevens

This weekend saw Samoa beat Fiji 19-14 in a bruising final at Twickenham to win the London Sevens title, their third ever World Series Cup title.

Lolo Lui scored a quick fire hat trick of tries to give Samoa an early 19-0 lead and although Fiji crossed just before the break through Timoci Matanavou, and then in the second half through Sailosi Rabonaqica, it proved too little too late.

The great comeback was nearly complete as Nasoni Roko dived over for the late try to equalise, only to be called back by referee David Keane after a late tackle in the build-up was ruled by the touch judge.

Heartbreak for Fiji who had done so well to get back into the match, and almost win it. Congrats to Samoa though, who proved once again just how lethal they can be on the day.

As for the crucial final decision, marginal, or the correct call?
