  • The Fijiana lost to Canada at the Dubai tournament on their way to 11th place

Canada is second in the season standings with 34 points behind leading New Zealand's 40. Barrett was then the hero, eventually crossing in the left corner after a chaotic finish, with the US dummying at a penalty and feeding the ball out wide.

The other Cup quarter-finals are New Zealand against Russian Federation, the United States against France and England against Australia.

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

On Friday, New Zealand's Black Ferns beat Canada 26-14 in the women's final.

But then the Americans knocked on at the restart, Collier caught them napping, and to cap a comical phase, they lost possession when they had eight men on the field.

England had earlier faced New Zealand in one of two incredible Cup semi-finals.

My only recollection of that first game a year ago was the ball being kicked off, we turned it over and two phases later I was knocked out!

However, in their final group match the U.S. shot out of the blocks to opening the scoring and lead to the Australians struggling to regain possession.

145 pilot whales stranded on remote New Zealand beach die
Since the beach is isolated, it's unclear how long the creatures had been stranded before they were discovered. On Sunday, 10 pygmy killer whales were found stranded on Ninety Mile Beach, in the country's North Island.

The next stage of the series takes place in Cape Town from 8-9 December.

The New Zealand men's and women's teams have also won Commonwealth Games gold and World Cup gold this year.

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.

New Zealand play the US, Spain and Wales in Pool C, and England, Australia, Canada and Japan feature in Pool D.

The fifth place semi-final was a closer affair but despite tries from Hannah Tyrell, Lucy Mulhall and Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe, England ran out 22-17 winners.

England, who beat defending champions South Africa in the quarter-finals, came from behind against Australia to finish third overall.

The 2019 Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens looks likely to be held on the weekend of December 5-7, to avoid clashing with the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
