Australian Women claim record breaking win at Sydney 7s

There will be no repeat for Canada at the Sydney Sevens.

Harry Jones and Nathan Hirayama scores tries for Canada, which dropped out of Cup contention by losing all three of its pool games earlier in the tournament - including a 52-5 loss to No. 13 Scotland.

The first-up win over Spain, in which Emma Sykes scored two tries, set the tone for the hosts' day.

However the last Pool match between the Sevens giants was the match of the day and played at a frenetic pace with Fiji scoring after the final whistle to beat New Zealand 19-17.

Since the women's world series began in 2012, no team had ever before gone an entire tournament without conceding a point.

The victory saw them remain unbeaten after two legs of the world series and it was only fitting after the most dominant tournament performance in womens sevens history.

Russian Federation beat the United States 19-14 and Canada beat France 28-12 in other quarterfinals.

In Sydney, the women's tournament was played largely in the morning and afternoon, while the men's was played at night.

The second 31-0 was against New Zealand in the final, no mean feat in itself, but it pales into comparison when you realise that the 2016 Olympic champions scored 213 points, including 35 tries - without conceding a single digit against them.

Australia's win also completed a miserable day for the New Zealand teams.

Golden chance: Australia are through to the semi-final of the Sydney Sevens.

This was the first tournament for Jess Breach since she switched into the sevens programme full-time and she has continued her unbelievable try-scoring exploits from both the Red Roses and in the Tyrrells Premier 15s.

Gosper will discuss the options with new Rugby Australia boss Raelene Castle on Monday and said he'd be open to any ideas.

Australia had lost their five previous meetings against New Zealand and Charlotte Caslick said after the match: "It was a fantastic way to finish the tournament here in Sydney in front of our home crowd especially as New Zealand are so tough to beat". "We didn't have the energy and the intelligence to stand up against New Zealand and it is very disappointing".
