South Africa heads for the next tournament in the HSBC World Sevens SeriesĀ  with a lead of 10 points over New Zealand on the table.

That’s despite finishing fourth in the Las Vegas Sevens this week-end.

The United States won their home tournament for the first time, beating Argentina 28-nil in the final. Fiji beat South Africa 26-22 in the bronze medal play-off.

Argentina had scored a last minute try to win the semi against the Blitzbokke 12-10.

But coach Neil Powell is still happy with the teams consistency, as they move ahead immediately to the next tournament in Vancouver this week-end.
