No slip ups in Singapore
April 16, 2005

All the big names have progressed to the knock out stages of the latest leg of the IRB World Series sevens unscathed.

Rugby World Cup Sevens winners Fiji also started well with Waisale Serevi inspiring them to an opening victory in Pool C, beating France 28-17. Scotland also started well, beating Hong Kong 38-0 in their opening game. A Josefa Tiko hat-trick then spear-headed a 67-0 win against a heavily outclassed Thailand side which was followed by a 17 -12 win over defending champions South Africa to top Pool D.

The South Africans had set the highest score in the IRB Series this year as they demolished Thailand 77-0 in their first game before going on to defeat France 22-14, as they look to defend their title.

England scored a 24-7 win over a tough Kenya side before running out 38-0 winners over Hong Kong.
The English finished the day with a 21-5 win over Scotland to reach the knock out stages relatively untroubled.

A hat trick from New Zealand skipper Liam Messam fired his side to a 52-0 win over Chinese Taipei. While in their second game they produced a clinical performance in wet and slippery conditions to overwhelm Singapore 68-0.

Meanwhile Australia, without usual captain Tim Clark, also got off to a winning start with a convincing 38-7 victory against home favourites Singapore. They then set up a pool decider against New Zealand with a 55-5 win over Chinese Taipei, Nick Reily grabbing a hat-trick of his own.
And it was the New Zealanders who triumphed in the decider scoring a 33-14 win.
