Rugby 7sEngland travelled to the second tournament, in South Africa, as series leaders and almost left with another win. Having powered past South Africa and Samoa on the way to the final, England found themselves trailing New Zealand late in the game before a Mathew Turner try levelled the scores with only moments to go. However, with a man in the sin bin, New Zealand managed to win a penalty and the resulting drop goal gave them the victory, 22-19. With a first and a second place in the opening two rounds, England remain the series leaders and are guaranteed to be the number one seeds for the next two rounds, to be held in Wellington and Las Vegas.
