Commonwealth Games: NZ women sevens open with easy victory

England's men's and women's teams both secured their place in the semi-finals of the Commonwealth Games rugby sevens at Queensland's Robina Stadium.

Any hopes South Africa might have had of making the semi-finals were well and truly dashed as the Canadians beat them 29-0 before the New Zealanders humiliated them 41-0.

The All Black sevens, runners-up at the 2014 Glasgow Games, will play England for a place in the gold medal match after England topped pool B.

Cape Town - South Africa have taken a significant step towards Commonwealth Games gold by beating Scotland in their final pool match on Saturday.




Fiji scraped past Wales in their final game to top pool D and qualify for the final four.

Akuila Rokolisoa, who only made the squad the previous day when Joe Webber was ruled out with injury, joined Kurt Baker, Andrew Knewstubb and Regan Ware as second-half try scorers.

As we move closer to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, it's inevitable that the look of Canada's women's sevens team will evolve.

In a gripping men's basketball semifinal game Friday, Conor Morgan of Victoria had 19 points and Mamadou Gueye hit a desperation three-pointer at the buzzer, as Canada stunned the heavily-favoured New Zealand Tall Blacks 88-86 to advance to today's gold-medal game at 6:30 p.m. PDT against Australia.
