Canada causes upset by beating Fiji at London Sevens

Samoa's Alamanda Motuga and Australia's Nick Malouf right in action during day one of the London Sevens at Twickenham London Saturday

At 11.42am Simon Amor's side will tackle the Blitzboks, whose HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series title was confirmed last Sunday in Paris, moments before they claimed their fifth tournament win in the 10-stop season.

MacRae's troops reached the showpiece after downing New Zealand and U.S. on day two in south-west London - recording a first-ever victory over the Kiwis in the quarter-finals by coming from 21-0 down at half-time to win 24-21. It's so special and I'm so proud of the boys.

In Canada's opener, Fiji built an early 12-point lead but Justin Douglas scored just before the half to make it a 12-7 game.

In a season where England made four tournament finals, Bibby highlighted the two winning legs as his most memorable moments.

"We had the chance to beat the current world champions at the end and for all bar the last 30 seconds".

The Bliztboks took out the world championship, ahead of England, Olympic gold medallists Fiji, New Zealand and the USA.

New Zealand went unbeaten through day one, beating Japan 33-7, Canada 19-14 and Fiji 27-21 thanks to a late try to substitute Jesse Houston.

'Star Wars' influences top baby names; Caitlyn plunges in popularity
There is only one new name in the top 10 this year-Elijah, the first time he has ever reached the list of 10. In general, she said, parents don't want to give their children names that might attract controversy.

England drew first blood in the final with a converted try from Dan Norton, and they came close to scoring again before half-time only for Hugh Blake to halt them with some well-timed scrambled defence.

Lindsay-Hague was the star for England, grabbing three superb tries, with Norton also crossing, while in the other semi-final, Joe Nayacavou scored as time expired to help lift Scotland past the USA.

Head coach Innocent Simiyu only managed to reach two Main Cup Quarter finals in Cape Town and Singapore, a massive drop in performance compared to last season where Kenya finished seventh on 98 points under the management of head coach Benjamin Ayimba.

"Today the guys wanted to go out and show just how much it means to play in an England shirt at Twickenham - to show their friends and family how proud they are to be part of this squad and I think they did that incredibly well".

"It says an bad lot about the consistency of this group and the way they keep fighting hard day in and day out for each other and their determination to make England proud".

Canada will face Argentina on Sunday morning.
