Aussie men break title drought in Sydney

Etene Nanai makes a run down the sideline against Australian Schools Barbarians match against New Zealand Schoolboys at Knox Grammar School in Sydney Australia on 2 October 2017

Harry Jones and Nathan Hirayama scores tries for Canada, which dropped out of Cup contention by losing all three of its pool games earlier in the tournament - including a 52-5 loss to No. 13 Scotland.

Holly Aitchison also dotted down for England as they established a 12-5 advantage at the break, with Deborah Fleming and Breach's two late tries securing the win.

Remarkably, for the first time in women's World Series history, Australia did not concede a point across six games to back up their dominant round one victory in Dubai last December.

The Sydney tournament is the third stop of the HSBC World Series tour.

"We know it's not easy to do in every country, we're going through the tender process now for the next World Series, we'll incentivise countries who can combine the women's event with a men's event".

Those defeats meant England just missed out on a place in the Cup quarter-final.

After a poor 2016/17 by their standards, finishing second to NZ in the World Sevens series, there has been a ruthlessness and energy about Tim Walsh's team this season, witnessed also in Dubai back in December when they won that tournament defeating the US 34-0 in the final.

The New Zealand men's sevens team were also beaten by Australia today, but crashed out in the quarter final.

"It is part of the assessment and was part of this assessment with the recent World Cup", Gosper said of Sydney's plans to improve its sporting infrastructure.

It's a tough assignment but the narrow margins between joy and despair in sevens were on full display for Australia after the last game saw the US hammer Canada.

"It'd be great to win a tournament regardless if it's my last; there's still more tournaments to come and I want to win a lot more than just this".

Australia beat Spain 29-0, Papua New Guinea 50-0 and France 43-0 in pool matches.

"It was a tough battle out there but I'm proud of us", Parry said.

Charlotte Caslick surprised Russia with a quick tap from a penalty for the first try of the second half and Cassandra Staples ran onto a grubber for a try which snuffed out any chance of a Russian comeback. "World Rugby has done really well in having the women's and men's finals on the last day".
