"I'm speechless, really proud of the boys", Fiji captain Jerry Tuwai said.

Fiji went on to beat Kenya 31 - 12 to win the Canada leg of the HSBC World Sevens Series. Samuel Oliech added the conversion for Kenya's 7-0 lead.Fiji responded nearly instantly through Josua Vakurunabili's try and Vatemo Ravouvou conversion to even the proceedings.

Nasilasila also featured in the lead-up to the next try, kicking into open space for Alasi Sovita Naduva, who kicked the ball on and claimed a helpful bounce to score. "We are a very young side and winning here in Vancouver gives us something to fight for in the rest of the season".

A quick penalty take from Eden Agero set up Oscar Ouma for the first try for head coach Innocent Simiyu's charges with the skipper running under the posts as Oliech added the extras.

Kenya had earlier stunned England 12-0 in the quarterfinals, their first victory against the Britons since 2011.
