The HSBC Sevens World Series remains a competition full of surprises. After shock wins by Kenya and Samoa in the last two tournaments, it was Scotland’s turn to achieve a historic first-ever Cup win at the last tournament of the season. Scotland became the sixth different winner during the 10-tournament series. Earlier they have beaten rivals England and USA on their way to the final. The Scots beat South Africa in a remarkable 27-26 victory after being 26-15 down at some point.
In the other competitions, New Zealand beat Argentina 29-14 to win the Plate trophy, Wales overcame Australia 24-19 in the Bowl final and Kenya secured the Shield with a confident 31-7 win against Russia.
Yesterday, Fiji were already crowned with the series title after qualifying for today’s Cup quarter-finals.
