• SA face Aussies in quarters

    South Africa will play Australia in the quarter-finals of the Olympic Sevens in Rio on Wednesday.

    The game, which kicks off at 11:30pm SA time, is a rematch of the Pool B clash, which Australia won 12-5.

    Meanwhile, New Zealand scraped into the quarter-finals when the USA suffered a five-point defeat to Fiji. The Americans scored a late try, but missed the conversion that would have seen them qualify at the Kiwis' expense.

    New Zealand will now play Fiji in the quarter-finals, with Japan taking on France and Great Britain up against Argentina.

    Olympic quarter-finals (SA times):

    Fiji vs New Zealand (22:00)
    Japan vs France (22:30)
    Great Britain vs Argentina (23:00)
    South Africa vs Australia (23:30)
