Both New Zealand sides are through to the semifinals of the Singapore Sevens World Series tournament.

The All Blacks beat the United States 19-14 and will face Australia for a place in the final.

The USA took a 7-5 lead into half time after Kevon Williams opened the scoring in the first minute, Regan Ware getting the reply for New Zealand. 


The All Blacks took the initiative in the second half, Fehi Fineanganofo with the early score, but Adam Channel pulled one back for the US to take the lead back. 

However, a strong cut line from Tone Ng Shiu saw him over the line, and with just a minute to go was enough for New Zealand to seal the victory. 

Meanwhile the Black Ferns eased past Great Britain 24-5 to set up a clash with Fiji at 5.02pm.

New Zealand proved too strong for Great Britain as they strode to a 24-5 win.

The series leaders were two tries to the good after the first half thanks to Risi Pouri-Lane and Theresa Setefano, but Lisa Thomson’s break early in the second showed GB weren’t out of it just yet, Ellie Boatman eventually getting over in the corner.

Georgia Miller strode away for New Zealand’s third, Risi Pouri-Lane adding a late fourth, and while the Blacks Ferns Sevens advance to the semis, there were injury worries for both Tyla King and Shiray Kaka.

The men's semifinal is scheduled for 6.12pm.
