NZ to face Australia in sevens quater-finals

7:55 am on 4 May 2014

The New Zealand sevens team will face Australia in the quarter-finals of the Scotland leg of the World Series after finishing top of their pool in Glasgow.

The men in black scored three tries in their final pool match to beat South Africa 19-5, gaining some payback for a loss in the Glasgow final last year against the green and golds.

New Zealand finished top of Pool A and will take on Australia in the quarterfinals at 10.58pm tonight (NZ time).

South Africa trail New Zealand by seven points in the World Sevens Series standings with the Scotland and England tournaments remaining.
