Making data count How Capgemini plans to revolutionise the World Rugby Sevens Series

Kenya Sevens will meet Australia in the semi-finals for the fifth place after it lost to Argentina 17-12 in the main Cup quarterfinals of the USA Sevens on Sunday morning at Sam Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas.

Shujaa had qualified for the quarters after an astounding 17-14 win over former champions Fiji, after a shaky start to the Las Vegas leg had seen them lose against France but salvage a win over Russian Federation.

Kenya finished seventh overall at the USA Sevens after series of battling performances throughout the three days of competition at a tournament that served as the fifth round of the 2017/18 HSBC Sevens World Series.

SA coach Neil Powell said prior to the Las Vegas and Vancouver tournaments that two finals would be an acceptable return considering his team was missing six front line players.

Argentina had made the final after beating Kenya 17-12 in the quarters and series leaders South Africa 12-10 in the semis.

The Washington, DC, Metropolitan Police Department is taking the lead in the investigation, the Secret Service spokesperson said. The incident affected pedestrian and vehicular traffic around the White House, the Secret Service said earlier on Twitter.

Fiji scored four tries with captain Jerry Tuwai dotting down twice while Alasio Naduva and Paula Dranisinukula scoring a try each.

"We had a poor opening match against Wales on Friday and did not play our best rugby against Argentina on Sunday‚ but did well in the other matches". We don't only measure ourselves on the results, but also the way we play.

South Africa skipper Philip Snyman got their fourth try before Bibby's second got England within five points at 24-19 with two minutes remaining, but they were unable to find another despite some late pressing.

Springbok Sevens captain‚ Philip Snyman‚ said the experience gained in Las Vegas will now have to be implemented in Vancouver next weekend.
