Nicole Heavierland USA 2018 Ian

Australia's men's team have defied a spirited US comeback to claim a crucial 26-19 win in their opening Sydney 7s clash.

However the last Pool match between the Sevens giants was the match of the day and played at a frenetic pace with Fiji scoring after the final whistle to beat New Zealand 19-17.

Australia are still yet to concede a point in the tournament, having won their three games on Friday by a combined 122-0, including beating Spain by the same 29-0 score in their opening pool match.

New Zealand and Australia have been the two dominant sides in Sydney, tallying 174-19 and 182-0 scorelines respectively across their five games so far.

The Canadian women's team and defending tournament champions will play for bronze at the World Series event after falling 26-0 on Saturday in the semifinals against New Zealand.

Ahead 12-0 at half-time, the Kiwis extended their lead via Kurt Baker shortly after the restart. 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.

Australia are scheduled to play neighbours New Zealand and Argentina will be up against old rivals England.

"We have some good combinations out there, obviously Cherry was rested a bit yesterday so it's great to have her back out on the field again".

Coach Tim Walsh pointed to that campaign, where Australia entered as world champions and clear favourites, as evidence they could handle the pressure in front of what is tipped to be a lively home crowd at Alliance Stadium.

In the final game of the day, the United States of America put six tries on the board against Canada and made sure of their progression.

Kelly Brazier and Michaela Blyde scored second half tries and Tyla Nathan-Wong kicked three of four conversions.
