England Sevens into Cup quarter final in Las Vegas

Brave Shujaa rock Fiji, cruise to Cup quarters

As disappointing as it would have been for Neil Powell's men not to lift another piece of silverware this season (they won the first tournament of the season in Dubai), they did manage to open up a 10 point lead in the overall series standings to second placed New Zealand.

In the bronze medal match, Fiji beat South Africa 26-22, while New Zealand beat Australia 17-12 to claim fifth place.

Argentina will be up against South Africa in the 1st semi final match with hosts U.S. clashing against Fiji in the 2nd semi.

It is the fourth time Kenya is failing to go past the main Cup quarterfinals.

"The last three tournaments and the last three times we have played them we have had a solid win in Sydney, right down to the wire in Hamilton and then again today, it was right down to the wire", Friend said.

But a minute later, a costly missed tackle from Campbell allowed South Africa's Dylan Sage to score another try, which was all they needed to hold off Canada's late charge.
