New Zealand 21-5 USA: All Blacks Sevens win Dubai tournament

Ireland couldn't add to their wins over Russi and Kenya on Thursday

The U.S. knocked out Fiji in the quarterfinals and Australia in the semis.

The teams also met in pool play on Friday with New Zealand winning, 24-7.

The Dubai leg of the women's tournament was not televised in full in New Zealand, with the two-day tournament being broadcast on the World Rugby Sevens Facebook page and the finals on Sky Sport 1.

The teams went back and forth in the first half, New Zealand going to halftime 12-7 up after possession was ripped from Canada and Tyla Nathan-Wong scored. France increased its lead to 28-5 with Adam Zaruba in the sin-bin for not releasing on a try-saving tackle. When I then got the phone call telling me I had won it again I was truly shocked but when I thought about it I realised it wasn't about me, it was actually about my team mates and what they do to make the game so much fun and helping create opportunities to score all those tries.

Zimbabwe had earlier on Saturday lost to Canada 35-8 in the Challenge Trophy quarter-final after losing all their Pool "A" matches against South Africa (31-0), Argentina (22-19) and Samoa (17-15) on Friday.

Collier quickly tipped the ball onto Andrew Knewstubb who finished off the play, strolling in under the goal posts untouched to score New Zealand's third try of the match. However, Waisea Nacuqu had other ideas and his breakaway try levelled the scores, only for Vilimoni Botitu to step up and miss the straightforward conversion to mean extra-time would decide the victor.

The Canada-Ireland winner will face the England-Australia victor in the semifinals.

While New Zealand built its lead atop the women's standings after two of six events, Canada vaulted over the U.S.to move into second spot.

The Canadian men were ninth previous year.

The two-time winners broke back through Dominique Du Toit, but Ellie Kildunne and Natasha Hunt both went over the whitewash to seal a flawless start to the event in Dubai.

"I know elite teams are measured on results but after the traumas of last 3 months & hardly any preparation I was really proud of the efforts of our boys", Canada coach Damian McGrath said via social media. "We want to try to finish top four and give ourselves a little break at the end of the year".
