Sunday News - - RUGBY -

NEW Zealand have pro­gressed from their pool with a game to spare in the rugby sevens tour­na­ment at the Com­mon­wealth Games.

After thump­ing Zam­bia 54-0, New Zealand put away Kenya in their sec­ond en­counter 40-7.

It means the fi­nal pool match against Canada late last night will be to se­cure top spot in pool C, and a favourable fi­nals draw for to­day.

The Kiwi men made a pre­dictably blis­ter­ing start to their Com­mon­wealth Games PHOTOSPORT tour­na­ment against sevens min­nows Zam­bia.

‘‘It was a great game. They are very sim­i­lar to play­ing Kenya. They’re a pas­sion­ate team and they’re big boys. They def­i­nitely played for their coun­try,’’ New Zealand’s Tim Mikkel­son said.

poolp play un­beaten and ad­vance to to­day’s semi­fi­nals on the Gold Coast.
