Australia guarantees sevens world series title ahead of Paris final

Bianca Farella

Tries from Semi Kunatani, Josua Vakurunabili and Kalione Nasoko failed to deter Kenya from claiming revenge against the Fijians, who beat them at the Canada Sevens and Hong Kong Sevens Cup finals.

That win means they can't be caught in the race for the overall series championship, no matter the result of Sunday's final against New Zealand. I backed myself and just enjoyed every minute on the field. The guys played phenomenal rugby and all credit to the team.

Kenya Sevens recovered from their opening Pool "A" loss to New Zealand with a stunning 21-19 win over World Rugby Sevens Series leaders Fiji in a thrilling match at the at Jean-Bouin Stadium on Saturday.

Canada reached the semi-finals courtesy of a 26-24 win over the US while France had an outstanding 48-7 thrashing of England.

Fiji recovered to beat Ireland 38-5 and U.S. 28-7 to finish fifth in Paris and put the pressure on South Africa going into the final but ultimately it was not enough and the Fijians were forced to settle for series silver, despite winning five of the 10 rounds.

As has been the case throughout this Paris leg, the Blitzboks weren't all that flash against Spain.

The Black Ferns thumped Australia 33-7 in the final of the Paris Sevens this morning, but their trans-Tasman rivals were still celebrating after they had done enough to take out the World series. Fiji, New Zealand and Kenya wrapped their Group "A" campaigns tied on seven points each but the duo had a better try difference than Kenya.

Hosts France claimed the series bronze medal despite being defeated 17-10 by Canada in the third-place play-off match.
