United States impress on opening day of Rugby World Cup Sevens

Exciting 3 Days For Fans

France, who had earlier stunned Olympic champions Australia to reach the final for the first time, were never in contention.

"It's going to be extremely tough with the knock-out format and the high quality of teams, but I have full confidence in the girls and the way we've been performing over the last few months".

In the women's tournament meanwhile, New Zealand marked themselves out as the team to beat with two emphatic wins, piling up more than 100 points without conceding a point in wins over Mexico and Ireland.

Black Ferns Sevens captain Sarah Goss echoed Mikkelson's sentiment, with fond memories of victories in Moscow and Gold Coast.

The All Blacks Sevens will face Fiji at 1.02pm Sunday (8.02am Monday NZT). "I am very proud of their attitude".

Michaela Blyde stole the show with a hattrick - ending the tournament with nine tries in total - while Portia Woodman and Tyler Nathan-Wong also got on the scoresheet in what proved to be a comfortable victory.

"Everyone's real. We genuinely love each other, we genuinely are family".

However, he shot to fame previous year with his song, Gummo which peaked at number 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Earlier this week the rapper was arrested in Texas on charges connected to an incident.

Blyde opened the scoring in the final for New Zealand, who weathered some ferocious French tackling before cutting loose.

One commentator said "it feels like Suva or Nadi" at the Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco and the Fijian fans have again proven they are the best in rugby, if not all of sport, at AT&T Park this weekend.

A statement from World Rugby said Samoa have "provisionally suspended one of their players".

Soyizwapi was in rampant mood as South Africa thrashed Ireland 45-7 in their World Cup opener in San Francisco on Saturday to set up a last eight clash with the Scots.

France had earlier dug deep to overcome Australia 19-12 in a thrilling semi-final while the indomitable Kiwis came from behind to defeat a spirited US side 26-21.

Samoa cut the deficit to just two points at the start of the second half thanks to a Tuatagaloa try, but a second yellow for the Samoan meant they would go the remainder of the match with six men.

They face a unsafe Fiji side, who thrashed Argentina 43-7 in their quarter-final.
