CONFIRMED: England’s men and women win rugby sevens bronze
England clinched double Commonwealth Games rugby sevens bronze as both the men’s and women’s teams won their respective medal matches.
England women scored three first-half tries on their way to a 24-19 victory over Canada.
But the men’s team were forced to come from behind to defeat South Africa 21-14.
That brought them their first Commonwealth medal since winning silver in Melbourne in 2006.
Women’s rugby sevens was making its Commonwealth debut in Australia, and New Zealand beat the hosts 17-12 in the final.
New Zealand also won the men’s final, beating Olympic champions Fiji 14-0 to win the final gold medal of the Games.
