London Sevens: Scotland beat England to seal second ever title

London Sevens: Scotland beat England to seal second ever title”

"The memories we have created this season have just been unbelievable and are something I'll look back on and think "wow that was special".

With the scores locked at 7-7 Wight's break and hand-off opened up England, Nayacovou threw a long overhead pass to Robertson, who fed the supporting Riddell for the go-ahead try.

Captain Philip Snyman dedicated the win to South Africa and all Blitzboks fans, saying the support throughout the season gave them much needed inspiration.

Roared on by the London crowd, the Scots kept their composure and went through the phases to put Farndale over for his second and celebrations ensued on the side-line, as Scotland beat New Zealand for the first time in rugby history.

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.

"What a year, I'm unbelievably proud of the boys", said the 26-year-old.

Canada saw off the US 22-19 in the bronze-medal match to round out the podium.

Sitting sixth on the series standings, the young Australian outfit are aiming to finish the season on a bright note after a mixed post-Olympics campaign.

With NZ on the brink of a semi-final spot at Twickenham, an assistant ref noticed something wasn't quite right with the number of Kiwi players on the field.

They ran into a 12-0 lead over SA before tries from Ruhan Nel and Siviwe Soyizwapi drew the scores level early in the second half.

Then after the buzzer and extra time looming, Norton squeezed into the corner for the match-winning try.

Scotland retained their London Sevens title with a 12-7 victory over England in the final at Twickenham.

England and Canada followed that and the hosts were clearly up for the challenge, with dream-teamer Ollie Lyndsey-Hague executing a lovely goose-step to score under the sticks early on.

They had earlier defeated United States 21-14 in the semi-final thanks to Joe Nayacavou's try with the final play of the game.

It was a valuable way to end the day with a quarter-final berth against the U.S. awaiting the Aussies on Sunday morning.
