Chasing their first tournament win since Vancouver in 2016, the New Zealanders clawed their way back with tries to Scott Curry and Andrew Knewstubb after Specman was yellow-carded for a deliberate knock on.

But as the game neared it send Blitzboks replacement Tim Agaba showed tremendous strength to power over the tryling and seal the match and tournament for South Africa.

The New Zealand women's sevens team have been handed a stunning loss to U.S. in the quarter-finals of the Dubai Sevens.

"As a first tournament for us this season I'm really proud of the continuous effort and the attitude the boys displayed in every single game", he said.

"We had a long pre-season and a few of the guys were involved in 15-man rugby and we have been saying that it's a 'brand new team with some familiar faces'".

"It's been a while since we all played together but it's so great to win again in Dubai", added Senatla, who scored seven tries in Dubai.


Jeffery Oluoch powered over from a turn over ball to put Kenya ahead, but his celebration was cut short by Seabelo Senatla, who latched onto a loose ball in the middle to draw level before he grabbed the brace for the tournament's champions.

Kenya Sevens have qualified for today's Dubai Sevens Main Cup quarter-final after beating Uganda 29-14 in a physical decisive final Group A match at The Sevens Stadium, last evening.

England picked up bronze after seeing off Fiji 28-21.

England had opened the day with victory over Australia through Glover's try with the final play of the game, though the rub of the green eluded them in the 14-5 defeat to New Zealand.

With just over four minutes left, Joey Ravouvou stormed down the left wing, shrugging off the tackle of winger Dan Norton to score. "We got stuck by our own line early in the second half and that killed us".
