Fiji's response was a super try.Amenoni Nasilasila, who has been electric all weekend, sliced through a weak Kenya decisive line and crossed the whitewash gallantly to hand it back to his team-mate Vatemo Ravouvou who touched down the ball for a 24-5 lead.

Former All Black Roger Randle takes over as coach in Hong Kong and has named a squad featuring six players uncapped at world series level.

Kenya's Collins Injera, left, runs for a try past New Zealand's Luke Masirewa during their semifinal match at the Hong Kong Sevens rugby tournament in Hong Kong. Local media reported four people had been killed, while thousands of homes were flooded.

A second-string New Zealand men's sevens team have comfortably dispatched Russian Federation 36-5 in their first match at world series tournament in Hong Kong.

The situation could further deteriorate with another storm system expected to pass through the country early next week.

"I'd like to thank my boys for the team effort and thank the Kenyan team for a good game", said Fiji captain Jerry Tuwai.

The flowers will also include, where possible, plants that are "in season and blooming naturally in May". The arrangements will be very natural and reflect the wild landscapes that the flowers originate.

To do so at the famed Hong Kong tournament made it an experience to savour, Randle said before kick-off.

South Africa beat New Zealand 29-7 to take the bronze medal, whereas Argentina edged U.S. 14-12 to safe fifth.

The result lifts Fiji to within three points of South Africa at the top of the standings, with New Zealand firmly entrenched in third heading into the eighth of 10 rounds in Singapore later this month.

Kenya maintains their position seven with 81 points with three legs remaining to the end of the HSBC Sevens Series while Fiji retains their second position with 123 points after seven rounds.

Earlier in the day there was another historic moment, this time for Japan, who earned a place in next season's World Rugby Sevens Series courtesy of a 19-14 win over Germany in the men's qualification tournament.
