New Zealand dominate in Dubai

  • Dylan Collier scored the crucial try in the final to beat the USA

But the Eagles, at full complement, could not expose the exhausted New Zealanders because they were unable to offload, and were plagued by errors.

Farella, meanwhile, scored two tries in the 24-7 quarter-final victory over Ireland en route to the Montrealer's leading seven tries in the tournament.

The Eagles opened the Sevens Series in Dubai by earning a spot in the title match against two-time defending World Cup champions New Zealand.

Losses to world and Commonwealth champions New Zealand (28-7), United States of America (33-12) and Spain (33-7) didn't tell the full story of a Wales team made up of six new caps - all of whom were playing top-flight sevens for the first time.

Jamie Levchuk, who has headed tournament operations for the Canada Sevens since day one and recently had all of Rugby Canada's events placed under his authority, pointed to the work of staff, volunteers and the local business community for the tournament's behind-the-scenes success. A try-saving tackle from Mike Ellery prevented the Blitzboks answering back before Mitchell's second and a Tom Bowen try increased England's lead to 17-0 at half-time. However, Waisea Nacuqu had other ideas and his breakaway try levelled the scores, only for Vilimoni Botitu to step up and miss the straightforward conversion to mean extra-time would decide the victor.

That set up the final showdown with New Zealand, which advanced by blanking Russian Federation 31-0 and the usa 22-0 in the knockout rounds.

Ombachi then responded for Kenya by scoring a brace before Olindi completed the comeback with a try of his own.

"Canada, they're just getting better and better", said New Zealand's Tyla Nathan-Wong, named player of the final.

"To come off a home World Cup and not finish the way we want to, it's a second chance to get out there and give it a go".

Canada is coming off a third-place finish in Glendale, Colo, the first stop of the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series.

"I know elite teams are measured on results but after the traumas of last 3 months & hardly any preparation I was really proud of the efforts of our boys", Canada coach Damian McGrath said via social media.

Earlier, Samoa set up a Challenge Trophy final against France. A crucial turn over in the last play of the game by debutant Scott Gregory secured the 7-5 victory, and was also awarded the UL Mark of Excellence as "Moment of the Tournament".

Fisher told reporters he was not aware of the incident and "had no idea" what happened. "I felt like he tore something in there". Craig , who was LSU's receivers coach in 2016, approached LSU's bench in the midst of a crowd storming shouting vulgarities.
