New Zealand And Hosts England Unbeaten After Day One In London

Hosts England and New Zealand are unbeaten after a thrilling day of action on the penultimate day of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in London. The rain and sun traded places in Twickenham as the 16 teams battled for position at the last tournament of the 2016-17 season. Sunday's quarter-finals will see USA play Australia, New Zealand face Scotland, England meet South Africa and Argentina take on Canada. Olympic gold medallists Fiji, who last failed to reach the Cup back at Las Vegas in 2014, find themselves in the Challenge Trophy quarter-finals against Russia and out of touch of England in the battle for second place in the overall standings.
Japan will not be one of the 15 core teams on the world series next year after they were relegated following a heavy 61-5 defeat to Fiji in the Pool stages.

Meanwhile, England's Dan Norton climbed up the DHL Impact Player standings in London and is hot on the heels of Wales playmaker Sam Cross, who is just 10 points ahead overall in the Performance Tracker.

The action resumes on day two at 09.30 (GMT) with the first quarter-final at 10.58. Click here to find out where you can watch all the action.
