Sonny Bill Williams begins 7s career with brilliant offload to beat South Africa in pool stages

Sonny Bill Williams started his 7s career on a high when he scored against Russia with his first touch of the ball, then did this in the dying stages of the pool match against rivals South Africa. His pass, after drawing three players, allowed Joe Webber to trot in untouched.

    And now I see Matt O' Brien has been dropped from the Super Rugby panel of refs. Cause meet effect.

    SBW's offloads are great in 15-a-side where there are support players to help secure any loose balls. But there really is nowhere to hide for an offload gone wrong in Sevens. A 50/50 pass is seldom that - more like 70/30 for the defending team.

    This offload and try was great, but the officiating towards the end of this game not so much. Ditto for the closing minutes of the pool stage game between the same two teams - both of which games NZ won with a score well after the hooter. The effort to hand NZ possession and then keep it going until the score was not very well disguised by Paddy O'Brian's barely Australian son. Call me a Saffa ref whinger of you like, but I'm not alone in calling this out. Terrible piece of home side refereeing.
