Through five World Series legs there have been five different Cup winners, a point Australia coach Andy Friend focused on after his side's sixth place finish in Las Vegas.

Shujaa had qualified for the quarters after an astounding 17-14 win over former champions Fiji, after a shaky start to the Las Vegas leg had seen them lose against France but salvage a win over Russian Federation.

The US team have never won their home tournament.

The Blitzboks found themselves in the Bronze final, battling for third place against Fiji following their 12-10 defeat to Argentina in the Cup semi final.

It is the fourth time Kenya is failing to go past the main Cup quarterfinals.

Shortly after the reception ceremony, El-Sisi and Bin Salman held a bilateral summit at the Ittihadeya Presidential Palace in Cairo .

"We had a poor opening match against Wales on Friday and did not play our best rugby against Argentina on Sunday‚ but did well in the other matches".

However, facing the reigning World Champions they trailed early on from two early blows as Siviwe Sovizwapi and then Cecil Afrika crossed for a 12-0 lead. "We have to take in the positives because we have some very tight games and fix a little bit of the mistakes that we have had and I believe we will be good to go in Vancouver", Ambaka said.

Springbok Sevens captain‚ Philip Snyman‚ said the experience gained in Las Vegas will now have to be implemented in Vancouver next weekend.

After receiving the ball about two metres from his own in-goal, Baker stepped inside one man and onto his own line, before stepping back out to the wing.

Fiji also scored four times‚ but converted three of them‚ which made all the difference.
