Scotland retain Twickenham Sevens title


Australia has qualified for the Cup quarter finals, winning two of its three pool games on day one of the World Series London Sevens tournament.

They avenged a defeat by Samoa in the last round in Paris with a 34-5 win before losing 19-12 to England in their second pool match.

The Red Roses got off to a flying start through prolific try scorer Dan Norton, but failed to add to that early score after some resilient defence from their neighbours from north of the border.

They led 7-0 at the interval thanks to a successful conversion from Will Edwards. In Sydney previous year they had eight on the field against Australia but it wasn't spotted at the time as New Zealand clinched a draw and progressed to the quarterfinals before winning the tournament, sparking an outcry across the Tasman. But four unanswered tries in the space of seven minutes saw them produce a remarkable 24-21 win.

Both Fiji and Samoa have ended the World Rugby Sevens series on a very low note, with the Fijians putting in their worst performance for three years, taking just eight points from the tenth and final leg in London, while Samoa could manage only three.

Failure to add the two points could have been costly had England been able to hit back, but Scotland finished the co ntest on top.

It was followed by Yes Bank (Rs. 537.48 million), I T C (Rs. 533.47 million) and State Bank Of India (Rs. 464.19 million). Analysts expect SBI to report net profit of Rs 2,628 crore on net interest income of Rs 15,448 crore.

The Langford-based Canadian men's rugby team ran with the best of them at Twickenham in the London Sevens on Saturday and prevailed 22-19 in a stunning upset over 2016 Rio Olympic Games gold-medallist Fiji.

The momentum of the match changed and winger Jamie Farndale scored two tries, the second of which came after the hooter and sealed a famous 24-21 fightback for the Scots.

It was a valuable way to end the day with a quarter-final berth against the U.S. awaiting the Aussies on Sunday at 7.58pm AEST.

From there they beat the champion Springboks in the quarter-finals at rugby headquarters before getting the better of Canada in the last four of the cup, all before defeat to Scotland.

"I'm proud of these boys here today but also all the players who have contributed to us through the season".

Kenya booked the date with Fiji after thumping Spain 33-7 in the quarter-finals.
