Black Ferns beaten in sevens quarter-final

A dominant first-half display from the Blitzboks saw them lead 19-0 at half-time, playing a 6 man New Zealand at a stage.

Timothy Agaba came off the bench to seal the victory for South Africa, as he went over in the final two minutes to score their fourth try to end the match at 24-12.

South Africa successfully defended their Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens title after beating New Zealand 24-12 in the opening round of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2018.

"We let NZ back into the game with a silly yellow card and one or two mistakes towards the end nearly cost us‚" SA captain Snyman said.

"There were some pretty sticky performances from us which we knew would be the case with this being our first tournament of the season", said Amor.

Smith was named player of the final for his hard-working efforts but he was quick to pass the praise on to his teammates.

"We deliberately didn't put the guys into anything like this in pre-season as it's such a long season for us so it was always going to be a little bit of a risk". Down to six men, Powell's team conceded tries to Andrew Knewstubb and Scott Curry and with only a few minutes to play there was only seven points in the tie.

Amor reserved particular praise for Harry Glover who scored the last second winning try against Australia.

The US went on to beat Russian Federation 21-12 in the semi-finals, but were comprehensively outplayed 34-0 by Olympic gold medallists Australia in the final.

In the other semi-final, England captain Tom Mitchell was instrumental in his side's first try, setting up Ruaridh McConnochie off a set piece line out on the New Zealand 10 metre line. After an interception in their own half, New Zealand stormed forward through Sam Dickson but he got scragged short.
