"In a way, we are lucky that Singapore is just a week after Hong Kong, which means we have a chance to fix things right away", said Soyizwapi, who made his debut in Hong Kong a year ago and has featured in nine tournaments since, scoring 21 tries in the process.

"Also the Hong Kong 7s last week was special and my two children were happy to see Fiji win".

The 29-year-old will be contesting his 60th World Rugby Sevens Series tournament in a Blitzboks jersey, only eight shy of Frankie Horne's mark of 68, but according to Dry, there are more tournaments to be won with the team before thinking about personal milestones.

Hong Kong matched the dynamic Fijians at certain points of the match, but were hurried with ball in hand and a number of turnovers saw them trailing 19-0 by the break.

However, Kenya Rugby Union, who are responsible for preparing the team and ensuring they have a conducive environment, has been spared the backlash with coach Innocent Simiyu and his players getting the flack.

"It was a bit of a surprise as Marky and I just found out over last weekend's Hong Kong Sevens". "We have a strong squad despite leaving some players behind and I hope we will navigate ourselves through to the highest stage of the competition".

"It's great to welcome back experienced players like Joe, Teddy and Lewis who have played for New Zealand, Singapore gives them an opportunity to step up and get some game time. I'm really looking forward to getting my first taste of coaching at worldwide level and I am sure that I will learn as much as the boys will this week", Rowark added.

Salom Yiu Kam-shing led the way for Hong Kong, with his efforts recognised on the tournament performance tracker.
