Samoa Shine, Scotland Shock And France Find Form In Paris

Scotland topped their pool for the second time this season as they shocked South Africa while Samoa upset their Pacific rivals Fiji and Australia as Paris played host to a day of top sevens action at the Stade Jean Bouin.

New Zealand and England also went unbeaten on Saturday as the penultimate round of the series saw some thrilling matches.

With South Africa still on course to secure the series win, the quarter-finals on day two will see Scotland play Fiji, England take on the USA, Samoa are rewarded for their efforts with a clash against South Africa and New Zealand play the hosts.

Elsewhere, day one also saw Canada, Argentina and Scotland cement their place at next year's Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco with just one qualifying spot left from the series, which looks likely to be filled by Samoa.

The tournament also saw New Zealand legend DJ Forbes mark his 150th series try while England's Dan Norton, who has scored more tries than anyone else in sevens history, reached 250.

The action continues on day two when Canada and Russia get the matches underway at the Stade Jean Bouin at 9am (GMT +1). Click here to find out where you can watch.
