England Sevens fall in semis

Figure image
Tigers back row Tom Croft made his England Sevens debut in Dubai this week, but the former Oakham School player couldn't prevent England from losing 19-0 to South Africa at the competition's semi-final stage.

Croft had scored a try in the opening day victory over Scotland and also played his part in the comfortable win over Zimbabwe on Friday.

England then beat France in their final pool game, before seeing off Australia in the quarter-finals.

Mike Friday's last match in charge ended with defeat however, as the Springboks prevented England from registering a hat-trick of tournament wins in Dubai.
