There was no mercy yesterday for bodies battered by three days of binge drinking at the city's biggest annual party - the shocks just kept on coming. England - favourites going into the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens - were bundled out in the showcase cup quarter-finals. Then their conquerors, crowd favourites Fiji, rolled back the years in capturing their 12th title here, just holding on for a 26-24 victory over South Africa. The South Africans could have forced the game into sudden-death extra time with a conversion following a try as the clock ran down, but the kick, by captain Mzwandile Stick, went wide. 'Back home, we were written off by our fans, and it worked in our favour,' delighted Fijian coach Iliesa Tanivula said of securing their first Sevens title in a decade. But before all that drama unfolded, Elvis appeared out of nowhere - and did an impersonation of Freddie Mercury. An 11-minute medley of rock 'n' roll classics, including the Queen anthem We Will Rock You, saw Macau-based Australian performer Tomos Griffiths dressed as The King for the day. It brought a packed Hong Kong Stadium to its feet before the finals. And then the players did the rest. It was - as always - one wild weekend, and apart from a spate of pitch invasions yesterday, everything went smoothly. Even the world's financial woes were, for a moment, forgotten. 'The best feedback for us is that everyone - from the first-timer to those who have been here many times - they all had a great time and they are all very proud of their tournament,' said Alan Payne, executive director of the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union (HKRFU). 'The service on the pitch invasions was a little bit helpless. We thought we'd improved the system, but we will have to work again to make sure it's much, much, much better.' The HKRFU's decision to ban jugs of beer from the South Stand was also deemed a success, and the move did not seem to hamper the usual rapid rate of consumption. 'Over the past few years, we've made a few changes with how we operate the South Stand,' HKRFU community manager Robbie McRobbie said. 'We've banned under-18s and now banned jugs, and the moves have both worked. There were a few who had to down a few quick jugs on Friday before they were let in, but people soon got used to it. The idea is to improve the experience, and we think we have.' Visiting Australian businessman Paul Frost agreed. 'It has meant a few more trips to the bar,' said the veteran of four consecutive Sevens. 'But you still get the job done.'
