New Zealand dominate in Dubai

Losing Start For Coach Paul Murunga As Shujaa Fall To Scotland -

New Zealand and the United States of America will battle it out for the first silverware of the new HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in the final of the Dubai Sevens.

The Canada Sevens earned the top score in five of the categories.

Defending champion South Africa lost to Argentina 17-12 in a thriller and still progressed to the Dubai Sevens rugby quarterfinals on Friday.

"We are thrilled to have received this award, which is the result of a dedicated team working with strong and committed partners that are allowing us to deliver a world-class event year over year", he said in a statement.

National Sevens team, Shujaa was yesterday relegated to the Challenge Trophy after registering three losses in pool B at the opening round of the 2018-19 HSBC World Sevens Series in Dubai.

Goss said the memory of their fifth place finish at Dubai past year was motivation this weekend.

Australia will meet Argentina in the quarter-finals on Saturday at 6:44pm AEDT while New Zealand will face Scotland, red-hot Fiji will take on the U.S. and reigning world series champions South Africa come up against England.

You break it all down there was some outstanding performances from a lot of players and a good performance from the team, but good's not going to cut it. Connor Braid then closed out the scoring for Canada. The scored remained at 7-5 despite England spending two-and-a half minutes probing for the match-winner after the buzzer had sounded, but an incredible defensive effort - later recognised as the UL Mark of Excellence for the tournament - kept them out. Our speed, our work ethic, our endeavour all day today from the quarter-finals to the semi-finals has shown through for us. A try-saving tackle from Mike Ellery prevented the Blitzboks answering back before Mitchell's second and a Tom Bowen try increased England's lead to 17-0 at half-time.

Knewstubb was tackled in the air taking the opening kickoff, causing America's Perry Baker to be sin-binned.

Britt Benn and Kaili Lukan then scored their second tries of the day in a 21-14 win over France that gave the Canadians first place in Pool C.

Canadian teammate Kayla Moleschi of Williams Lake concurred: "We all realize what the sweep of the year is about, but we take each game as it comes".

Canada is coming off a third-place finish in Glendale, Colo, the first stop of the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series.
