England Sevens win bronze with dramatic finale in Singapore

Fiji players stand on the podium after receiving the silver medal after the men's rugby sevens gold medal match against New Zealand at the Robina Stadium during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast

"I'm speechless. Australia are a very good side and took us to the wire", he said.

Fiji won the match 12-10 and went on to win the final 26-22 against Australia.

The Pacific Islanders wasted no time getting back into the game as captain Jerry Tuwai pounced on a loose ball, wriggled free from a sea of yellow bodies, and burst down the pitch to send his team 21-10 up.

"We were disappointed with the number of errors that we made in our semi-final game against Australia but we'll keep on working hard to get better".

Tuwai added: "To all the people in the stadium, thank you very much for the support and back home thank you very much for your prayers, support and belief in this young team".

Earlier in the afternoon, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) won the Under-14 Singapore Schools Sevens Series title after pummelling Saint Andrew's 31-0.

Just two tournaments remain in the 10-stop series, which resumes in London on June 2.

Fiji's win makes it three titles in a row with wins in Vancouver and Hong Kong and it's fourth in the series including Hamilton 7s earlier in the year.

While Fiji coach Gareth Baber was visibly elated by his side's stunning comeback, he urged them to sustain their stellar form for the two remaining legs.

It was a cruel finish to Tim Walsh's first tournament as coach but an impressive reply following Australia's underwhelming Commonwealth Games campaign earlier this month when they finished fifth.

"We're confident in the way that we're playing. We've got to keep playing the way we are at the moment, we've got to look after the players, they've got to look after themselves and look to capitalise on these last two tournaments in Paris and London".

Fiji started strongly and Waisea Nacuqu opened the scoring with neat footwork to weave through defenders and the reigning Olympic champions quickly doubled their advantage through another converted try from the influential player.

Injera scored his 260th try in the series, as Shujaa were relegated to the 5th place semi final, where they lost 17-7 to New Zealand.
