New Zealand beat Australia 17-12 in Commonwealth Games Women's Final

The Australian Women’s Sevens side have claimed Silver at the Commonwealth Games following an epic Final against New Zealand on Sunday.  The two great rivals were locked at 12-all at the end of regular time before an 80 metre effort from New Zealand well into extra-time sealed the Gold.

It was a remarkable display from Australia who, already without co-captain Sharni Williams, lost star playmaker Charlotte Caslick in the first-half after she was removed for a HIA test.

Super Rugby Round 8 Roundup: Clinical Emirates Lions roar to big win

Young winger Madosh Tambwe scored four tries to help steer the Emirates Lions to a comprehensive 52-31 Vodacom Super Rugby win over the DHL Stormers on Saturday evening in Johannesburg.

On Friday morning the Cell C Sharks suffered a heart-breaking 38-37 loss to the Hurricanes in Napier after they conceded a converted try in the fourth minute after the final hooter. Although the coastal side can be very proud of their outstanding effort, they will be disappointed at their failure to close out the match.


Blitzboks keen to discard novice tag

Experience may not be one of the tools in the Springbok Sevens’ armoury as they attempt to win the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens for the first time, but the team is determined to use the other attributes that could lead to glory as they look to stay ahead of the hunting pack.

The Blitzboks have an eight-point lead on the log table as they enter the seventh of 10 tournaments in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series, and with no less than five debutants in the squad, few are banking on them to go all the way.


Super Rugby Round 7 Roundup: Vodacom Bulls take honours in derby clash

The Vodacom Bulls returned to winning ways with their 33-23 derby win over the DHL Stormers on Saturday evening, while earlier in the day the Cell C Sharks also returned to form with their superb 63-40 Vodacom Super Rugby triumph over the Blues in Auckland.

The Emirates Lions played at home on Sunday afternoon in a repeat of the 2017 final against the Crusaders and the New Zealand side edged the Highveld team 14-8 in a close fought match.
