They say good things come to those who wait, and that was certainly the case for Argentina on day two of the Vancouver Sevens. The Pumas beat the Olympic champions Fiji 29-10 in the final of the sixth leg of the men’s HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series – and in doing so claimed their first tournament win in the series in 14 years. The Argentinians played impressive rugby all weekend, but really turned it on in the final against the Pacific islanders – the winners in Singapore last week – to lift the title. The last time Argentina won a World Series crown was in 2008, when current coach Santi Gomez Cora was a player. “You have to dream, because dreams do come true,” an emotional Gomez Cora said after the full-time whistle. “I loved playing on the circuit, but ever since I have been a coach, this has been the moment I have been working towards. My players must take all the credit, because they work so hard and they wanted to win this one for their country so much.” Once he get's going, you just cannot keep up!

Ninety seconds later, flier Marcos Moneta scored an excellent try for Argentina, his ninth of the weekend, which Tobias Wade converted to put them 7-5 up. Before half-time, Gomez Cora’s side scored their second and third tries. A brilliantly worked team effort was finished off by Santiago Vera Feld before Moneta went over in the corner as the Pumas built an unassailable lead. Argentina had reached the final with a 24-12 semi-final win over Australia, who had previously beaten New Zealand in the quarter-finals. Fiji made their way to the trophy match with a 45-5 victory over Samoa in an all-Pacific semi-final. Australia defeated Samoa 21-19 in the bronze medal playoff. “We knew that Fiji would come at us, but we matched them physically and we managed to score some good tries when our chances came along,” said Moneta after his player-of-the-final display. “This one was for all of our fans around the world who give us so much support – thank you.” England’s Dan Norton announced during the weekend that he would retire after the Canadian tournament. The all-time leading Sevens Series try-scorer, the 34-year-old speedster has notched 358 tries for England in 91 tournaments since making his debut in 2009. He was also a member of the Great Britain team at the past two Olympic Games, picking up a silver medal in Rio in 2016. The next leg of the World Series will be held in Toulouse, France, from May 20 to 22.
