England Women make sure not to leave Sydney empty-handed

England Women make sure not to leave Sydney empty-handed

South Africa are now on track to defend their title in Sydney and will face Kenya in the Cup quarter-finals.

As for the men, they had only the one match yesterday, eventually edging out the U.S. by a margin of seven points, the final score being 26-19. Fiji carried the ball 95 meters through a series of passes and collisions before Veremalua scored in the arms of two Kiwi tacklers to snatch the most dramatic win of the tournament so far.

The final will be one of three women's matches played between men's fixtures, at 2.37pm AEDT.

New Zealand will play Olympic champion Australia for gold. "We're looking forward to finishing the tournament strong tomorrow starting off with Argentina and we'll be focused completely on that tomorrow morning".

Scotland tried to burn the Aussies on the edge early but it was the hosts who managed the first score, with Jesse Parahi fending off a Scotsman to cross in the second minute.

Co-captain Sharni Williams' try then continued the rout in the second half, but it was Emma Tonegato that had tongues wagging post-game.

They weren't able to hold out a Scotland score for long, with Jamie Farndale sprinting away in the fifth minute to narrow the margin back to five.

The men recorded a comfortable win over Canada in their first match of the day before fighting out a tight affair with Scotland that had two lead changes to win by a handful of points.

Aussie skipper Lewis Holland said the message was simple in the final moments, with a man down.

"It's feeling exactly like Dubai, so hopefully we can go all the way", Pelite said.

"Player for player, it's a really good match-up and the reality is that if one team makes a mistake, the other will just pounce on it".

The Aussies will be sweating on the fitness of livewire Maurice Longbottom, who rolled his ankle after Australia's pool game against Canada, with Friend unsure whether he will be fully fit to play on Sunday.

After narrowly missing out on a place in the Cup quarter finals on day one, England thrashed Papua New Guinea 52-0 in the semi-final.
