Shujaa into Dubai Sevens Cup Quarters

Australia celebrate winning the first leg of the World Series after they defeated USA in the final 34-0. Pic World Rugby

However, Shujaa's defensive frailties were exposed against Series champions South Africa who humiliated them 48-5 in their second match.

A dominant first-half display from the Blitzboks saw them lead 19-0 at half-time, playing a 6 man New Zealand at a stage.

A last minute lapse saw Kenya miss out a chance to play in the Main Cup semis after narrowly losing 12-14 to the All Blacks of New Zealand in the quartet-finals at the opening leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series in Dubai on Saturday.

New Zealand typically fought back after Rosko Specman was yellow carded‚ with tries through Andrew Knewstubb and captain Scott Curry to make it a nervy end to the match.

Cape Town - The Blitzboks have won the Dubai Sevens for the second year running, beating New Zealand in a pulsating final.

"It was the first tournament of the year so there were a lot of mistakes and lots we can work on as we turn our attention to Cape Town next week".

"We deliberately didn't put the guys into anything like this in pre-season as it's such a long season for us so it was always going to be a little bit of a risk".

"We aren't focused on the result‚ we are focused on the processes and our aim is to leave the pitch happy knowing we did all we can‚ even if the result doesn't go our way".

Kenya Sevens lost 12-14 to New Zealand in Dubai 7s quarters.

South Africa made a blistering start to the final, with Philip Snyman, Senatla and Kwagga Smith scoring tries in the opening four minutes of the contest.

"It's easy to play well in a team as good as this‚" Smith said.

On day one, on Friday, the BlitzBoks shook off the rust from the off-season by getting the better of Uganda, Kenya and Canada, none of whom ever came close to really troubling the defending champions, and now are the hot favourites to again go all the way and take the title.
