Wales Sevens reached the quarter-finals of the 2017 Sydney Sevens Series as they pulled off a shock to beat Olympic champions Fiji.

Gareth Williams' side started the day with a narrow 14-12 win against France after Ethan Davies scored late on.

Morgan Williams scored a hat-trick as Wales pulled off a surprise 28-15 win against back-to-back series winners and Olympic gold medallists Fiji.

In their final game, Wales drew 7-7 with Samoa to finish top of Pool B.

The day marks a turnaround for Wales, after the disappointment in Wellington a week earlier, where they were beaten by Canada and made just the Challenge Trophy semi-final.
