England knock South Africa out of London Sevens Cup
May 21, 2017
England scored a try after the hooter to beat South Africa's Blitzboks 17-12 in the Cup quarterfinals of the HSBC London Sevens being played at Twickenham.

With the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series title already won, the Blitzboks were keen to also bag the last of ten tournaments, but fell short in the opening match on Day Two.

England opened the scoring to lead 5-0, but Chris Dry finished off some dazzling footwork from Rosko Specman to score and give SA a 7-5 lead at the break.

It was 12-5 when Werner Kok raced through from the kick-off, but when the winger was sin-binned for an alleged neck roll, England scored the equaliser.

Then after the buzzer and extra time looming, Norton squeezed into the corner for the match-winning try.

South Africa will now play Argentina at 15h26 in the 5th place semifinal.
