Fiji superstar Semi Radradra shone brightest for his side in their opening win of the Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco, scoring a try and setting up another in a 35-10 thumping of Japan.
Despite being the underdogs, Japan hit the front early on through Kameli Raravou Soejima, before Fiji struck back with Semi Kunatani going over.
Jose Coyikal Seru would score Japan’s second try, giving them a 10-7 lead at the break.
To their credit though, Fiji would survive the scare, hitting back through Jerry Tuwai to restore his side’s lead.
Radradra then stepped up to the mark, firstly with an assist for Josua Tuisova, before scoring himself.
Jasa Veremalua would put the icing on the cake for Fiji, affirming their status as one of the tournament favourites.
