Samoa's victorious USA Sevens campaign

Samoa's victorious USA Sevens campaign

If you haven't yet seen what happened at the inaugural Las Vegas Sevens tournament in the USA, here's a clip that features the best of the winners, Samoa, in action throughout the weekend.

Beating New Zealand emphatically in the final, the 33-12 win in front of a whole host of fans made up for their loss a week prior, against Fiji in Wellington.

They've now also moved up into second place on the IRB Sevens World Series standings, ahead of Fiji but still behind New Zealand, who are on the top of the table.

Star of the tournament Mikaele Pesamino scored a hat trick in the final, following on from scoring an incredible eight tries on day one, including a hat trick against Scotland and five against Chile, taking him to 11 tries for the two day tournament.

With his 11 tries, Pesamino surpassed countryman Uale Mai as Samoa's all time leading try scorer on the Sevens circuit. He is now fourth on the all time list at 123, behind Fabian Juries who is on 173, Ben Gollings on 193, and Santiago Gomez Cora who tops the list at 227.

You can see Samoa's run to the final in this video, as well as the final itself. Enjoy.
