Aussie coach sees highs and lows in sevens campaign

The Blitzboks would make pretty good movie stars

In Sydney a year ago they had eight on the field against Australia but it wasn't spotted at the time as New Zealand clinched a draw and progressed to the quarterfinals before winning the tournament, sparking an outcry across the Tasman.

Two new caps have been named in the All Blacks Sevens team for the final tournament in the rugby sevens world series in London this weekend.

The last quarter-final was more straight forward as an impressive Canadian side took on Argentina.

England defeated world series champion South Africa 17-12 with a decisive Norton try in the quarterfinals, en route to its first final in its home event since it won in 2009. Veteran John Moonlight scored the winning try - his 100th on the circuit - with no time remaining to help Canada post just its third win in 48 tries against the Pacific islanders.

From there they beat the champion Springboks in the quarter-finals at rugby headquarters before getting the better of Canada in the last four of the cup, all before defeat to Scotland.

Against Fiji, it was a one sided match as Kenya only got one try late in the second half through a solo effort from Dennis Ombachi.

'Shadow Brokers' threaten to release more hacking tools in June
From the letter, it looks like group tried auctioning these hacking tools, but they didn't really find buyers for the same. Yet, we could not and should not believe anything the group says only because they posted it on a blog.

Japan will not be one of the 15 core teams on the world series next year after they were relegated following a heavy 5-61 defeat to Fiji in the Pool stages.

Scotland, runner-up to South Africa last time out in Paris, retained its London crown with a 12-7 win over England.

Australia had blind-sided Spain with six tries and five conversions that left little room for the opposition to launch any form of attack.

The Glasgow Warriors scrum-half got back to his feet to force a turnover and after England knocked on at a lineout, the Scots were able to run the ball into touch through Farndale to secure the win.

Twickenham Stadium, fondly known as the cathedral of rugby, turned into a nightmare for Kenya Sevens after they were blown apart by Mike Friday's USA and South Africa during the London Sevens on Saturday.

MacRae's troops reached the showpiece after downing New Zealand and U.S. on day two in south-west London - recording a first-ever victory over the Kiwis in the quarter-finals by coming from 21-0 down at half-time to win 24-21.
