England's women suffer at hands of new format; male counterparts reach quarters

Australia is the defending women's champion

New Zealand won the women's Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco by defeating France 29-0 in Saturday's final.

Naya Tapper scored two first-half tries as the hosts claimed a 21-5 halftime lead, but Russian Federation battled back to get within a score before Ilona Maher and Cheta Emba posted tries to ensure their semifinal showdown against New Zealand.

The defending champion Black Ferns topped 100 total points scored after winning their first two matches 57-0 and 45-0 against Mexico and Ireland respectively.

Michaela Blyde was the star for the Black Ferns with a brilliant hat-trick as the New Zealanders outclassed the French at AT&T Park.

"Last time we played, they actually beat us in Paris, so we dare not underestimate them". "France are a quality team and for them not to score against us is a proud effort from the sisters".

"Our teams train in the same facilities so we know how hard each other work every day, so to get a result alongside the women is awesome", he continued.

Ireland had earlier shocked England, seeded one place above them in eighth, with Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe's second try proving the difference as her side won 19-14.

Offset nabbed on drug and weapon charges
Offset has been arrested on firearm and drugs charges just ten days after the birth of his daughter with Cardi B . The Migos rapper was pulled over in a suburb just outside of Atlanta for an improper lane change.

Men's action is scheduled to conclude on Sunday (July 22).

France, who had upset Australia in the previous round, led 7-0 at half-time before New Zealand recovered to win through tries from Kurt Baker and Joe Ravouvou.

"We really played well against Russian Federation in our opening match, but against China we unfortunately did not deliver the same effort and commitment and I am not happy about that", the coach explained.

"They're winners. And they've come into a group of boys that are also winners", Baber said.

England needed an extra-time win over hosts US to set up a semifinal clash with South Africa who thrashed Scotland 36-5. It is the first time in 21 years the Sevens Boks have made it this far in the World Cup.

Werner Kok started the rout after crashing through two Scottish tackles to open the scoring early in the first half.
