Sevens Boks stutter into quarters

The Springbok Sevens side finished their pool matches unbeaten to set up a quarter-final against England in Edinburgh.

The day started with a 19-all draw with Argentina, who eliminated them in London. That result would have been particularly disappointing given that they lead 19-0 at one stage.

They then edged hosts Scotland 22-21 in an enthralling encounter before sealing their place in the Cup play-offs with a 17-12 victory over Australia.
