England women fly into Sevens quarter finals

Dylan Collier scored the crucial try in the final to beat the USA

The second leg is next weekend in Cape Town.

It was at the 2015 Dubai Sevens where the US rugby sevens team scored its historic first-ever win over New Zealand, but an even more historic cup final win was not to be on Saturday as the Eagles fell to the All Blacks 21-5.

"In saying that it was a really good lesson for us to build as a team, form a few new combinations with some of the regular players out with injuries, and to see where we need to get better".

A converted try to Ngarohi McGarvey Black finished the scoring, as the New Zealand men followed their women's team from a day before in becoming champions.

Earlier Australia looked on course for the gold medal match after crushing England 27-12 in the quarter-final before losing after the siren to Canada 15-10 in the semi-final.

Canada trailed 21-0 before Pat Kay scored to cut the French lead to 21-5 at the half.

The last three men's teams to win in Dubai have gone on to win the series.

A stunning breakaway try from 18-year-old Lily Dick earned the Australian women's team a bronze medal at the Dubai Sevens as they edged out the United States of America 26-21 in a thrilling third place play-off.

With four World Series tournaments remaining - the next in Sydney in February - New Zealand top the standings on 40 points, six ahead of second-placed Canada.

Britt Benn and Kaili Lukan then scored their second tries of the day in a 21-14 win over France that gave the Canadians first place in Pool C.

Australia also went through the mill in their semi-final and felt heartbreak at the death. Fiji led 17-7 at the break. They had a firm hold on every element of the game and players opened their boxes of tricks at will. Maurice Longbottom's weaving run set up Jesse Parahi for the first try and it set the tone for what was the come. However, Waisea Nacuqu had other ideas and his breakaway try levelled the scores, only for Vilimoni Botitu to step up and miss the straightforward conversion to mean extra-time would decide the victor.
