Fiji did not beat France by enough to progress to the quarter-finals in Dubai

In the women's draw the Fijiana will meet New Zealand in the quarterfinals despite dropping their opening match of the tournament to Australia. We call ourselves a defence team, and we are proud of that.

Kenya's quest to win a match failed when they lost to Spain 22-19, hours after they had gone down England 12-5 to finish last in Pool "D".

It was a frustrating night at the office for New Zealand in the opening leg of the 2019-20 world series, having earlier topped their pool by romping past Wales, Canada and eventual semifinalists Samoa.

"The crowd in Dubai is unbelievable".

South Africa overcame England from 14-0 down to win 19-14 with a pair of late Justin Geduld tries.

Fiji have missed out on the Cup quarter-finals for the first time in the 21-year history of the Dubai Rugby Sevens men's tournament.

They beat Canada 26-14.

"It's incredible. It doesn't matter who pulls this black jersey on, you're always going to play with pride, mana and for yourself, your friends, your family - that name on your back and especially the fern, your country", said New Zealand captain Tyla Nathan-Wong. New Zealand play United States of America while Australia is up against Samoa in other Cup quarters showdown.
