All the talk at this year’s London 7s is about another cross-code convert, but Sonny Bill Williams has been quietly going about his work in his own fight to make it to the Olympics. On the opening day in London he made this cracking tackle, reminding everyone he is out there.
World Cup winner Williams read this attack from Russia and stepped in to cut it off, chopping down big Denis Simplikevich, exciting commentator and former New Zealand 7s star himself, Karl Te Nana. “Get you some son! Wohooo!”
New Zealand beat Russia 33-10, beat Brazil 31-0 and drew with Argentina 14-14. They will face the USA in the Cup Quarter Finals tomorrow morning.
Fiji secured the overall title by qualifying for the knockouts, taking an unassailable lead at the top of the table. They have now won back to back titles, making them odds on favourites for Rio.
