The Bok Sevens team lost 14-10 to England but still qualified for the quarter-finals of the US Sevens.
South Africa booked their place in the play-offs with comfortable wins against the USA (36-0) and Mexico (53-0) but couldn’t put the Poms away. Instead of setting up an easier meeting with Kenya, the Boks will face Argentina in the quarters. The winner will play Samoa or Scotland in the semi-finals.
Meanwhile, current IRB Series log leaders New Zealand cruised into the quarter-finals without conceding a point. They beat Wales 19-0, France 39-0 and Scotland 27-0, and will play Fiji in the next round.
