Australia and South Africa continue to dominate Sevens

18 January 2013

The blistering temperatures haven’t put the men’s Australia and South Africa sides off their game as they continue to dominate into the Friday afternoon session at St Ignatius’ College, Riverview.

After the lunch break Australia recorded two amazing wins, the first being 75-0 over China and the second 53-0 against Japan.

Against China, Adrian Delore starred for the Aussie’s as he crossed for three tries and lead the team around the park brilliantly.

Aussie forward Tepai Meorora remarkably scored within the first 10 seconds against Japan after claiming the ball off the kick off to go under the posts.

Guy Hamilton continued the onslaught for Australia skilfully setting up two tries and bagging two for himself.

Meanwhile, South Africa followed a similar road to Australia as they thrashed China 73-0 and Tonga 36-0.

After three games this leaves Australia with a total of 150 points for, 12 against and South Africa 167 points for and 0 against, setting up a mouth watering final fixture this evening when the two sides face off.
