Australia qualified for a place in the 2016 Rio Olympic sevens by marching through the Oceania Tournament in Auckland, NZ, conceding only 7 points. They defeated Tonga 50-0 in the final; the loser had previously upset Samoa 41-5 in the semis. Both Tonga and Samoa will have one last opportunity in the qualifying round repechage.
The Wallabies, who had finished fifth in last year's HSBC 7s circuit, experienced no competition in the two-day event, winning all six games. In the Day Two round, they scored 138-0 with easy wins over American Samoa, Papua New Guinea, and Tonga.
The Fijian women dominated the event, going undefeated and easily outclassing their weaker opponents. Fijiana scored 138-0 in the Day Two round, beating Papua New Guinea twice (43-0 and 40-0) and Samoa 55-0 in the final.
Now, both Australia and Fiji will join other nations that will send both Men's and Women's teams to the Brazil Olympics.
