11:44 am on 25 May 2015

Fiji will be back on the Women's Sevens Series next season after finishing eight in their debut first full season on tour.

The Fijiana outclassed China 38-12 to win the bowl final at the weekend in the final leg of the season in Amsterdam.

It's their fourth bowl title in six events and was enough to ensure they finished six points clear of Spain.

A top-eight finish for the season ensures Fiji maintain their permanent spot on the series next season.

New Zealand, Canada, Australia and England finished in the top four to earn direct entry into next year's Olympic Sevens tournament.

Fiji can still qualify for Rio via a regional qualifier later in the year.
