Tom Kingston returns to the Australian squad for the London Sevens

They went on to build on that achievement by beating the US and England to retain the Twickenham leg of the World Series Sevens that they won in their breakthrough campaign a year ago.

"What a year, I'm unbelievably proud of the boys", he said.

U.S. would later turn the tables on South Africa, winning 24-12 as both sides eased through from Pool A to the Cup quarters.

England went into the break 7-0 up thanks to a piece of magic from Dan Norton, the playmaker splitting four defenders and turning the sweeper inside out before scoring.

Defeat meant that the US topped Pool A, leaving the Blitzboks to face hosts England in the last eight.

"The memories we have created this season have just been unbelievable and are something I'll look back on and think "wow that was special".

Rocky Khan (calf), Sione Molia (shoulder) and Jamie Booth (quad) are still unavailable after picking up injuries in last weekend's Paris tournament, where the Kiwis finished third.

Up 21-0 at halftime at Twickenham, New Zealand lost 24-21 to a jubilant Scotland who celebrated their first victory over the men in black.

Scotland's semi-final against the United States featured yet more drama when with the match tied at 14-14 and time up but the ball still in play, Jo Nayacavou crossed for the winning try to set up a final against tournament hosts England.

Pep: I'd have been sacked by Barca, Bayern
As a player, I've given everything and I love Manchester as a city and I've had my best moments as a player here at the club. But they will end the campaign without a trophy as they scrap to qualify for the Champions League via a top four finish.

Canada would go on to capture the bronze with a 22-19 victory.

Mullins - coming onto the field in the second half - scored a try to give Canada a 15-14 lead over arch-rival US with two minutes to go.

The clash of New Zealand and Fiji is always interesting in London, and this match lived up to the hype.

An assistant referee spotted eight players on the field for the New Zealand team and the Scots were awarded a penalty which led to a try.

Scotland sealed back-to-back London Sevens titles as they came from behind to beat England 12-7 at Twickenham.

In the semi-final former Perthshire and Dundee HSFP wing James Fleming kept the USA's Perry Baker in check to just two tries while Robertson and Bryce kept the scores level.

"There's an terrible lot of credit that goes to the players and the staff".

The last quarter-final was more straight forward as an impressive Canadian side took on Argentina.
