Rugby World Cup Sevens: Double accomplishment for standard-setting New Zealand

Rugby World Cup Sevens: Double accomplishment for standard-setting New Zealand 

Australia's ladies' sevens mentor John Manenti is sure his troops will stick around as they plot the end of a wild New Zealand in front of Tokyo's 2020 Olympics. 

Manenti took the rules after April's Commonwealth Games and helped the Rio gold medallists stick on to win their second World Series crown. 

Be that as it may, there is no denying the Kiwis are the group to beat after they frolicked to a World Cup title in San Francisco on the end of the week. 

Australia was steamed at France in the semi-finals and needed to make due with bronze. 

What's more, the group has not beaten New Zealand since a 31-0 whipping topped an impeccable Sydney World Series leg in January.

"We're in the pursuing pack now and they will leave and buckle down simply like we will," Manenti said. 

"They [New Zealand] are looking fitter [than they did in Sydney]; that amusement was a great kick up the posterior for them. 

"It [bronze] was baffling, in light of the fact that our desire is they win gold, yet the idea of sevens is that one awful 50% of a half is sufficient." 

Manenti said the maintenance of star playmaker Charlotte Caslick, who was head-chased by NRL clubs in front of the debut ladies' season, looked good. 

"The young ladies have been offered contracts and I think they'll all return," he said. 

"We need young ladies playing for the correct reasons yet here we are in San Fran[Cisco]… right now the correlations aren't there [in other football codes] and they might be at some stage yet not for some time you'd think." 

The side will take four or five weeks off in front of October's World Series opener in Denver. 

Emma Tonegato [shoulder] will go under the blade and miss up to a half year of rugby, while Emilee Cherry will have a lower leg wipe out and Alicia Quirk will get examines on a harmed knee.

Men's group work to tenth 

The Australian men were beaten 24-12 in the play-off for ninth by a resurgent Ireland side in what was a frustrating competition for the side positioned fourth in the present World Series standings. 

Furious about France on the very beginning, ninth was as well as could be expected do as New Zealand went ahead to end up the primary men's group to win consecutive titles. 

Be that as it may, sixteenth seeds Ireland, late landings on the World Series scene this year, commanded ownership to indent a second win against Australia in three endeavors this season. 

The Irish drove 17-7 at the break and were never headed in the second half in spite of a trademark Maurice Longbottom dash giving Australia some expectation. 

Australia had before beaten Canada 17-9, with John Porch's second attempt urgent after scores were bolted 7-7 at halftime. 

New Zealand's men topped off a brilliant end of the week for the Kiwis by beating a noteworthy England 33-12 at a pressed AT&T Park in the decider, after England advanced because of a 29-7 bombshell of World Series champions South Africa in the semi-last.
