Mixed start for Kenya 7s in Commonwealth games

Mixed start for Kenya 7s in Commonwealth games

For Australia coach Tim Walsh, it was the ultimate gatecrash.

But careless play allowed the move that led to Amenoni Nasilasila diving over for the golden try to seal the match and relegate the Blitzboks to the playoff for third place against England. It was far more cutthroat in the men's however, with only the victor from each of the four pools securing passing to the medal games.

Speaking of the intense rivalry with Australia, New Zealand's Theresa Fitzpatrick said: "They are our biggest competition and we are just as skilled, the skill level is high for both teams, it's just about heart".

Kenya and South Africa had shared the spoils in the World Rugby Women's Sevens Series qualifier in Hong Kong last weekend and this was another close battle for African pride.

Friend described the feeling within the Australian camp as "shattered".

"It really showed our character as a team, we didn't let them come back and went back at them".

"I couldn't believe it. Today wasn't our day".

Trump to Address Nation from the White House
Trump spent Monday evening calling associates to vent and gauge their reaction to the news. On Capitol Hill, a bipartisan group of four senators moved to protect Mueller's job.

Portia Woodman had earlier opened the scoring for New Zealand with a blistering run down the left touchline, before she stepped inside Charlotte Caslick and outsprinted Emma Tonegato to the line.

Walsh gave a fairly blunt assessment of his side's performance, stressing the need for improvement if his side are to add Commonwealth Games gold to its Olympic crown.

"We're devastated ... you can't fault the effort we put in but we don't like losing", Walsh said.

New Zealand and England are currently playing their semifinal now at Robina Stadium. I think the emotion's a bit of both.

Scotland and Wales men lost their final pool matches, to South Africa and Fiji, and face each other in one of the games to decide 5th to 8th place on Sunday. And the Kiwis doubled their advantage just before the break, Michaela Blyde touching down after some smart ball movement on her inside. "I had no idea what was going on ... but I am so proud of the girls", Goss said. "By getting a yellow card, many had to cover, so I felt bad about that".

"Unfortunately we couldn't get onto the podium today‚ but that's sport ..."
