Fiji drops to 5th place in the World 7s Series standings

Fiji edge New Zealand in last-second thriller at Sydney Sevens

Fiji edge New Zealand in last-second thriller at Sydney Sevens

Australia beat the United States 26-19, defeated Canada 27-5 and edged Scotland 24-21 to top Pool D.

New Zealand would claim sweet revenge against the Fijians blowing them apart 31-7 to win the fifth place final.

Australia was also unbeaten in pool play and substantially improved its title chances when it beat New Zealand 24-12 in the quarterfinals.

Redeeming their disappointing fourth a year ago at home, the Aussie women's team smashed New Zealand in their final 31-0 and made history in the process by becoming the first team ever - men's or women's - to go through an entire world series tournament without conceding a point.

Remarkably, the result means the Aussies didn't concede a point all tournament while scoring 213 points of their own across their six games.

"So for them to now turn up and to do that on a World Series and in the process to knock off New Zealand and South Africa in the same tournament must give them belief and I know it has given them belief". The final quarter-final spot was decided when US won its second match by beating Canada in the last match of the day.

Australian captain Lewis Holland praised his team's will-to-win.

Seven members of the Canadian roster are holdovers from the bronze-winning side at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

New Zealand looked to have sealed the game when they led 17-14 with only seconds remaining.

"We were still in at halftime‚ but once they got momentum in the second half‚ we could not stop them".

AUSTRALIAN sevens star Charlotte Caslick believes the Sydney Sevens is a step in the right direction for gender parity but she'd like to share prime time billing with men, saying its "pretty shit" women have to play in front of empty stadiums in the morning games.

A sin bin to New Zealand after the half-time siren didn't help their cause and Australia made the most of their numerical advantage after Emilee Cherry slid through a gap to feed Ellia Green to score under the posts.

After finishing second in Pool C played over the first two days of competition, England lost 10-0 to Argentina in the Cup quarter-final and although they held the lead at the break, went down 5-10 to the All Blacks.
