Australia finish sixth at Vancouver rugby sevens, Fiji win

The South Africans lead with 109 points from Fiji with 101, New Zealand with 92 and Australia with 84.

The All Blacks Sevens are now second in the standings, 10 points behind South Africa, heading into the sixth round of the series.

Kenya Sevens Rugby team on Monday lost 31-12 to Fiji in the final of the Vancouver Sevens in Canada.

Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team captain Seremaia Tuwai was speechless after winning the Canada 7s.

After the final, Tuwai said he was proud of his young side.

"We are the first team to win two tournaments this year but that will only make the other teams much harder to play against".

Vols Return to NCAA Tournament
Michigan State may not be a top seed in the NCAA tournament, but the Spartans are among the most talented teams in the nation. That included its latest defeat at the hands of Alabama, which forced Auburn to exit the SEC Tournament early.

Some loss of concentration enabled Carlin Isle to wade through for a try that stretched USA's lead to 19-12 but Injera turned on the pistons to lay the ground for William Ambaka to score a thriller from a tackle and level 19-19 as the hooter sounded.

In the final, Kenya started off well with Willy Ambaka creating time and space to surge over the line for a try. Samuel Oliech swept over to put Kenya back in front. Alasio Naduva and Paula Dranisinukula also scored after the break. Kenya ended United States hopes of building on their victory last weekend in Las Vegas with a dramatic 24-19 semi-final victory over the Eagles.

Australia held on to beat Argentina 28-24 in their fifth-place semi-final, after leading 28-0 at halftime, while England accounted for New Zealand 21-17.

Kenya had reached the semis with a 12-0 quarter-final win over England, their first over that side since 2011.

South Africa responded with two tries from Siviwe Soyizwapi and tries from Cecil Afrika and Dylan Sage - Sage scoring well after the siren to extinguish Australian hopes.

The series now heads to Hong Kong for the seventh round April 6-8.
