Top four seeds all make Dubai semis
The heavens have opened on the morning of the final day of the Emirates Airline Dubai Sevens to plunge into doubt the destiny of the first Cup trophy in the 2006/07 IRB Sevens World Series.
The top four sides all won through to the semi finals here on day two. In the first quarter final Fiji proved far too strong for France, William Ryder scoring a hat trick as they ran out 46-7 winners to book yet another semi against New Zealand, who recovered from their loss to Samoa last night to outclass Canada 31-0.
In the second Cup semi final South Africa will face defending Dubai champions England. Paul Treu's side digging deep to grind out a 19-10 win over Samoa in driving rain before England came from behind to beat Australia 21-5, speedster David Strettle again among the tries.
France will play Samoa in the Plate final after they won respective semis against Canada and Australia. After a poor start to the tournament the other France showed up against Canada and duly won 36-0.
Samoa then came from behind to beat the impressive young Australian side amply led by Tim Atkinson, 12-5.
Argentina will play Zimbabwe in the final of the Plate competition. Try scorer supreme Santiago Gomez Cora inspired the Pumas from the outset of the second day's play and scored twice in his side's 10-7 victory over Portugal in the semi final.
Zimbabwe continued their fine tournament by overpowering the impressive Tunisians in another all-African encounter, 17-10.
Wales beat Scotland 17-12 in sudden death extra time to make the final against the Arabian Gulf, who compounded Kenya's misery here in Dubai to win their first match for three years, 12-7, and book their final place
We won the shield again?
Hey, considering we've always been pretty **** at this we're not doing too badly.
Next step: Bowl competition!
