Lolo Lui's smashing tackle at the Hong Kong Sevens

The Hong Kong leg of the HSBC World Series Sevens kicked off this weekend amidst much fanfare as the biggest rugby spectacle in the region continues to impress and entertain locals and visitors alike.

While Sevens may not be everyone’s cup of tea, there’s no doubting the skill factor on show and as has been said before on here, many top Test playing starts made their name in the shortened version of our wonderful game.

As you’ll see in this clip, Samoan Lolo Lui shows that skill and speed isn’t the only aspect of Sevens that makes it worth watching. He absolutely smashed his Tongan counterpart in their closely fought 24-17 win over their pacific rivals in Pool C.

Incidentally Lolo Lui was suspended recently after kicking England player John Brake in the head at the Wellington Sevens. If anyone is interested in seeing that clip, I’ll try get it posted sometime soon.

Samoa are through to the Cup Quarter Finals, where they will face Australia. They got their with wins over Mexico, Scotland, and Tonga. This clip, from the IRB, also includes footage of two neat tries from the Japan vs England match.

Both of them came from nicely executed cross-field kicks. We’ll have more of the best from the Hong Kong Sevens soon. If you watch the games and spot anything you think is worth posting here, please feel free to let us know.

Time: 01:33
