It created the reverse angle for Jeremiah Nanai, slicing back inside to go in under the posts in the 15th minute.

    The Black Ferns Sevens side have continued their impressive recent form with two big wins on the opening day of the Sydney Sevens tournament on Friday. The side took out the Hamilton leg of the World Sevens Series last weekend and won both of their matches on the first day of the three-day Sydney tournament,

Australia settled and a Munster one-on-one steal set up Nanai for another charge, but this time the big man went just short.
