Seven of the Best Tries PLUS Highlights from the London Sevens

Seven of the Best Tries PLUS Highlights from the London Sevens

New Zealand completed the double on a record breaking London Sevens weekend as they won the tournament as well as topped the overall points standings in the HSBC Sevens World Series. Here are some of the best tries scored, plus all the highlights.

London was the third successive tournament win for the Kiwis, following wins in Hong Kong and Glasgow. They also won at the Gold Coast and in Wellington, and by finishing fourth or higher in each tournament, accumulated enough points to hold off challenges from South Africa and Fiji.

In an incredible final they trailed rivals Australia 21-0 before coming back to claim a 52-33 victory in front of a festive Twickenham, that produced a record attendance of 74 969 on day one.

“It was important for us to finish the world series off with a bang. A finish like that really shows a lot about our character,” said captain DJ Forbes post match.

South Africa beat Kenya in the Plate final and confirmed their second place standing thanks to a weekend that included a hat-trick of hat-tricks for flyer Seabelo Senatla. He scored 13 tries in total, the most for any player on a series weekend since 2005, and only the third ever to do so.

Canada had an impressive series and finished 6th overall, which included a Bowl final win over Argentina. Two of their players, John Moonlight and Phil Mack, were also included in the IRB’s Dream Team selection. The USA won the Shield by beating Japan 36-12 in the final.

Below are the tries selected by the IRB as the best seven overall, featuring (in order), Lee Williams, Dan Norton, Sean Duke, Bryce Heem, Terry Bouhraoua, Waisea Nacuqu and Con Foley.
