Our speed, our work ethic, our endeavour all day today from the quarter-finals to the semi-finals has shown through for us.

After several more minutes of intense attacking pressure, including two and a half more after the buzzer, New Zealand's incredible defence was rewarded with Scott Gregory exerting himself on the breakdown and winning a penalty.

Two Tom Mitchell tries helped England to a 22-5 win over South Africa and Tom Bowen scored in the semi-final, but England lost it 7-5 to New Zealand.

The New Zealand women's sevens team have started strongly in Dubai, topping their pool and setting up a cup quarterfinal against Russian Federation.

Wales were also made to do without one of their main strike runners, Ryan Conbeer, who was injured in a typically ferocious collision in the opening minutes of the match against New Zealand.

New Zealand's toughest match was with the United States, and Andrew Knewstubb was in the thick of it.

There was to be no first Dubai title for U.S., though, as tries by Dylan Collier and Ngarohi McGarvey-Black ensured it would be New Zealand celebrating a long-awaited sixth Dubai title.

Canada's last tournament win was in France in May 2016 when it beat Australia 29-19 at the final stop of the 2015-16 season.

The upgrades required include adding night vision, thermal sensing, and the monitoring of vital signs of the wearer. According to Bloomberg , the US Army and the Israeli military have already been trialling the HoloLens in training.

Australia picked up where they left off on day one in their quarter-final with Argentina, dominating from the outset as they continued their bid for a first Cup success in Dubai.

The tournament was won by New Zealand, which beat the U.S.

New Zealand and Australia had split the six previous Dubai finals.

Ombachi then responded for Kenya by scoring a brace before Olindi completed the comeback with a try of his own. Sam Pecqueur scored a try with seconds left for Scotland to trail by only 21-19, then Jamie Farndale appeared to touch down the victor, but it was disallowed because he stepped out of bounds. But the men's last Dubai title was nine years ago.

Canada went 1-2 Friday, losing 26-12 to England and 31-19 to Australia before beating Japan 27-7.

Earlier, Samoa set up a Challenge Trophy final against France.

The Canadian men's pre-season preparations were interrupted by a labour dispute with Rugby Canada.

The Canadian women finished second in the women's event in Dubai. "We want to try to finish top four and give ourselves a little break at the end of the year".
