Two sevens wins over New Zealand, a professional league looming and the nation’s fastest growing team sport – the US now offers rugby the richest prize
Fiji began the defence of their HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series title in ominous fashion as they beat England 28-17 in the final to claim victory at the opening event of the season in Dubai today.
