The fifth tournament on the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2019 commenced in style as an excited crowd enjoyed a busy first day at the Sam Boyd Stadium and one that produced a few surprises along the way.
One of the joint World Series leaders going into Las Vegas - New Zealand - started as they mean to go while Fiji, England and Australia also impressed.
Argentina produced the upset of the day by snatching a late two-point victory over USA in Pool B and invitational side Chile held South Africa to a 5-5 draw in Pool C.
With the tournament in Las Vegas being split over three days, all 16 teams took to the field and played two of their three pool stage matches. This stop marks the halfway point on the World Series meaning that every point is vital, not only for the title race, but also in the chase for qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
