New Zealand Completes RWC Double Jul 22, 2018

New Zealand's All Blacks pose with World Cup Sevens trophy

The weekend results mean New Zealanders are the men's and women's World Cup holders in the traditional 15-a-side rugby and the sevens. The final marked the third shutout of the tournament for New Zealand after they outlasted host United States in a tense 26-21 semifinal win earlier in the day. "Credit to England‚ who played really well".

"It's massive", captain Tim Mikkelson said. Uganda lost to Chile 20-17 at the 2018 Rugby Sevens World Cup.

San Francisco: New Zealand became the first team in history to win back-to-back World Cup Sevens crowns on Sunday, completing a clean sweep of titles with a 33-12 defeat of England in the final at AT&T Park.

There was heartbreak for the USA in the quarter-final of the men's competition as they were beaten in extra-time 24-19 by England in a thrilling match.

The bronze medal was the best finish at a Rugby World Cup Sevens since 1997, when South Africa claimed silver. The team finished fourth at the Commonwealth Games - their lowest placing in a major sporting event for the season.

"A lot of people wrote us off coming into this, they didn't even give us a shout", said England captain Tom Mitchell, whose side defeated host USA and South Africa on the way to the final. "We knew coming in it was going to be tough".

Trump Races Toward 25 Percent Tariff on Auto Imports
Some of Trump's fellow Republicans are also already balking at the idea of government-funded bailout for a trade war they oppose. He's felt the impact of the trade wars directly as milk prices plummeted again this year following a long downward slide.

But the Blitzboks delivered a top class performance to bounce back and beat Fiji, a team who scored six consecutive wins over the South Africans during the recent World Series.

A member of Samoa's Rugby World Cup Sevens squad was suspended from the final day of play on Sunday after a post-match fracas which left Welsh player Tom Williams with a tournament-ending injury, authorities confirmed. "They were smarter than us and we played their game, not ours".

"France are a quality team and for them not to score against us is a proud effort from the sisters". Scoring five tries to one, the Blitzbok could never get a foothold in the game, with England maintaining possession and slipping through the defence.

Harry Glover and captain Tom Mitchell scored two well-worked tries as England took a 10-7 lead.

Felipe Brangier extended Chile's lead with another unconverted try three minutes from time but Wokorach showed Uganda was not giving up anytime soon.

The Blitzboks will now have to fight for the bronze medal against Fiji at 2:24am on Monday (SA time), while England will take on New Zealand in the final (2:53am).
