Kiwis claim Plate
25 May 2008
New Zealand won the final of the Plate competition after they beat the Springbok Sevens team 19-12 in London.
The Boks couldn’t repeat their victory over the New Zealanders in Adelaide, and this time they were severely bullied at the breakdown. They conceded numerous penalties, couldn’t get quick ball to free up their backs, while Vuyo Zangqa was also yellow-carded for repeated infringements at the rucks.
Samoa beat Fiji 19-14 in the Cup final.
