England to face SA in London Sevens quarters

London Ideal Place To Launch Fijian Campaign For Rugby World Cup Sevens

But with HSBC World Rugby Sevens victories in Vancouver and Canada, Bibby felt the achievements of Simon Amor's side were more than comparable to their success in Rio, last summer.

It was their first win in at any level against a New Zealand based team and it came in wonderful fashion.

Both Fiji and Samoa have ended the World Rugby Sevens series on a very low note, with the Fijians putting in their worst performance for three years, taking just eight points from the tenth and final leg in London, while Samoa could manage only three. The result also means they qualify automatically for the Sevens World Cup in San Francisco next year.

Canada lost 19-12 to traditional power New Zealand, but defeated Japan 28-14, on three tries by Justin Douglas, to finish the round robin 2-1 and advance to a championship quarter-final match-up against Argentina this morning.

He increasingly sees himself as the White House's only effective spokesman, according to multiple people who have spoken with him. Much of Trump's ire has been focused on the communications team, all of whom were caught off guard by Comey's ouster.

"I'm absolutely elated", captain Scott Riddell said before accepting the trophy.

England drew first blood in the final with a converted try from Dan Norton, and they came close to scoring again before half-time only for Hugh Blake to halt them with some well-timed scrambled defence.

They were 21-0 down at half time, but stormed back to take the win and a place in the Semi Finals. This sport is something that just grips you.

England finished second and Fiji third in the overall standings.

White House goes blue to honor nation's police officers
Since the first known line-of-duty death in 1791, more than 21,000 USA law enforcement officers have made the ultimate sacrifice. In our region, Pennsylvania has lost 854 officers, OH has lost 791 officers and West Virginia has lost 180 officers.

Mullins - coming onto the field in the second half - scored a try to give Canada a 15-14 lead over arch-rival United States of America with two minutes to go. "You couldn't write a script like that".

Chasing the game at 12-5, the crowd erupted as Wales broke down the pitch following a James Benjamin interception allowing Owen Jenkins to cross in the final minute.

The Scots scored four unanswered tries in the second half, including the match-winner after New Zealand had been penalised for inadvertently fielding eight players on the field.

Scotland, runner-up to South Africa last time out in Paris, retained its London crown with a 12-7 win over England.

Fallen officers to be honored
Then later on, as it progressed, Congress passed a public law dedicating an entire week to Police Officers' Memorial Week". A memorial ceremony Monday morning to honor four fallen Mansfield Police officers, kicked off Police Week on May 15.

The Scots did it the hard way, beating the host nation in the Twickenham final, and they carved out a little bit of history in the process.
