Samoa finish off the pace

Samoa finished in a share of last place in Paris after a winless weekend in the French capital.

The Manu sevens were outclassed 35-12 by Fiji, 22-17 by New Zealand and 24-10 by Kenya in pool play, and did not fare any better on day two, going down 19-7 against hosts France and 24-19 to Scotland.

Despite a disappointing end to the season Samoa still finished 10th in the overall standings, up from 13th the previous year.
