Canada beats US in Singapore sevens final

Phoenix player Rolieny Bonevacia dribbles past Roar's midfielders during the Hyundai A-League Wellington Phoenix vs Brisbane Roar Westpac Stadium Wellington 21 January 2017

"We were far from our best performance this weekend - our decision making wasn't good enough and that is something we need to address going forwards", said Amor.

The South African defensive held up though, for a hard-fought win.

"You know we get up when we know it's a big game and we don't quite front in games that we think we should win".

And the Canadian men did it the hard way Sunday at the Singapore Sevens, defeating New Zealand and England before dispatching the US 26-19 in the final. "It was a real cauldron of fire for those young guys".

Sevens Rugby was included for the first time at last year's Rio Olympics.

The team arrives back Tuesday morning and Powell admits that some hard work awaits the squad before the last two tournaments in Paris (13/14 May) and London (20/21 May).

Canada beat the United States 26-19 to win their maiden World Series Sevens title on Sunday (Apr 16) and cap a day of extraordinary upsets that culminated in the first ever all-American final.

"We were very fortunate to extend our lead", South Africa coach Neil Powell told AFP.

'Fast and the Furious' on road to record global debut
More chapters are indeed due in the saga, which began in 2001, with the next episodes due for release in 2019 and 2021. Despite the rising costs, the film remains on pace to top $1 billion worldwide, making more sequels a certainty.

With momentum swinging towards the men in gold, South Africa infringed at the breakdown and were reduced to 6 men.

The Aussies then regained possession nearly immediately after the restart and a brilliant break and offload by Liam McNamara allowed Lachie Anderson to score under the posts, which left a simple conversion for the win. With the scores locked at 17-17, Tom Lucas calmly slotted the conversion to secure the victory and ensure Australia's progression to the Semi Finals. A Canadian kicked it ahead and Fuailefau was first to touch it down.

Mullins opened the scoring when he beat two tacklers down the sideline and reached the line before speedster Perry Baker could run him down.

With Australia's injury toll continuing to rise, the Aussie 7s fought hard against the U.S. but were unable to match them for pace out wide.

England dominated the opening stages of the match as they controlled possession and territory.

That was short-lived however, as England scored from the second half restart again and then extended the lead a minute later to lead 17-7. Just before the break, Australia pounced on a mistake by England and were able to score in the corner with Henry Hutchison diving over to take a lead 12-7.

ACS (I) beat St. Andrew's 17-14 in the first round final, but lost the second round final 12-33. Both sides traded blows for the rest of the half as the Aussie 7s strived to find a way through to earn an elusive third place.

England, who have two Cup titles to their name in this series, settled for bronze with a 14-12 victory over Australia, while Wales won the Challenge Trophy by beating Scotland 24-12.
