San Francisco World 7-a-sides


San Francisco World Cup 7s
- h. Richard, Java Beach, 7.21.18
USA men’s 7s, seeded fifth, worked Wales (12) for five trys, blanking their opponents 35-nil in the final match last night at the SF 7s Rugby Festival on Friday in the Round of 16. Scotland (8) returned to top Kenya (9) in overtime, 31-26, in an oddly administered match that saw the Africans down to four men by the death.


Numero uno seed South Africa got four touch downs from phenom, Siviwe Soyizwapi, in its 45-7 pasting of Ireland (16), while second seeded Fiji defeated Japan (15), 35-10, and New Zealand (3) defeated Russia (14) 29-5.

England (4) squeaked by Samoa (13), 19-15; Argentina (7) blanked Canada (10) 28-0, and in the only upset of the round, France (11) beat Australia (6), 22-17.
