Sydney Sevens: England men win bronze with narrow win over Fiji

The 21-5 victory for the All Blacks sees them tie with the United States of America at the top of the overall standings. We got them back tonight.

Dickson, HSBC Player of the Final, said, "I'm just stoked we could win it after a disappointing Hamilton where we lost in the semis".

Kenya went down 14-19 to Wales in the Challenge Cup early Sunday morning to drop to the 13th place playoff. Australia rallied though, scoring to lead by three before Nick Malouf ran 60 meters to score the decisive try for a 29-21 win and set up its quarterfinal against Fiji.

Fiji's chances of winning a third consecutive tournament were ruined with a red card in the first half of its semi-final against New Zealand.

Every time New Zealand win a sevens event, the team marks the occasion with a haka after being presented the trophy.

Rugby Australia CEO Raelene Castle has declared the Spotless Stadium incarnation of the Sydney Sevens a success but admits all eyes are on the shiny new Western Sydney Stadium for next year's edition of the tournament.

The league later admitted that its officials blew the call, but that provided little solace to New Orleans' players and fans. The New Orleans Times-Picayune spoke volumes with a Monday front page that was nearly entirely blank, but for five words.

The women were just as commanding in their final, with their win a sweet revenge after they were crushed 31-0 by the Australians in the Sydney final past year.

England secured third place after defeating Fiji 19-17, while South Africa scored a try in the final play of the fifth-place play-off to beat the hosts and cling onto fourth place in the overall standings.

Australian coach, Tim Walsh, lamented his side missing opportunities, suggesting they needed to develop their mental toughness in order to compete with the best.

This year, however, the result was overturned with the Black Ferns defeating the home favorite 34-10, completing New Zealand's double in Sydney.

There are three rounds left to play in Japan, Canada and France.

Their wins in both the men's and women's competitions means Australia's trans-Tasman rivals now sit first in both World Series standings.
