24 July, 2018, 09:57 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

Despite the silverware, it was still ninth place out of 16 competing teams after they had been knocked out by Ireland in the first round of the World Cup proper.

The All Blacks Sevens have followed in the Black Ferns' footsteps, successfully defending their World Cup titles in San Francisco.

Amor's side were beaten 33-12 by the All Blacks in Sunday's gold medal match, but showed tremendous resilience throughout the competition - knocking out hosts U.S. at the quarter-final stage in extra time, before a 29-7 win over HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series champs South Africa in the semis.

'Of course to be in a World Cup final you want to lift it, you want to be winning it, ' he said.

Fiji, one of the favourites to win the title, were shocked after the All Blacks Sevens scored four tries to three, including a Ravouvou double. "It shows the strength of character of the group, we were bitterly disappointed that we didn't put our best foot forward in the first game, but to come out and fight for each other, the other girls back home, our support staff".

Scott Curry was named man of the match.

England hit back on the stroke of half-time when Mike Ellery found space inside the 22 from Dan Norton's pass for a converted score which made it 14-7 at the break.

But Ruaridh McConnochie then fended off Kurt Baker and steamed away, giving England hope, but the black pall rolled over the Bay as Akuila Rokolisoa hammered the final nail into the English coffin on the buzzer.

The All Blacks Sevens entered the competition seeded third behind Fiji and South Africa - both of whom suffered semifinal defeats - but came through with victories over Russian Federation (29-5), France (12-7) and Fiji (17-22) en route to Sunday's showpiece. "They were smarter than us and we played their game, not ours".

"It's massive", said co-captain Tim Mikkelson. I am delighted with the way that the guys performed right the way through the tournament.

"I am super proud to get to that point, but it means it hurts more as we worked so hard to get there".

"World Rugby can confirm that a Samoa player has been provisionally suspended from Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 following an initial investigation into an alleged incident in the tunnel area after a match between Samoa and Wales at AT&T Park on Saturday", the statement reads.
