England's men's and women's teams both secured their place in the semi-finals of the Commonwealth Games rugby sevens at Queensland's Robina Stadium.

After the break, Regan Ware, captain Scott Curry and Andrew Knewstubb scored to bring up 40 points for New Zealand.

The Langford-based Canadian team opened with a 29-0 victory over South Africa and 24-12 win over Kenya before dropping a 24-7 decision to the No. 2 New Zealand Black Ferns.

Cape Town - South Africa have taken a significant step towards Commonwealth Games gold by beating Scotland in their final pool match on Saturday.

The New Zealand men's team had won gold at every Commonwealth Games since the sport was included in the programme in Kuala Lumpur in 1998, before having to settle for silver in Glasgow in 2014.

The men kick off their campaign against Zambia tomorrow, followed by pool matches against Kenya and Canada.
