We believe we are a top four side and now it is up to all of us in the USA Sevens squad to deliver the consistent success that will be needed to ensure we don't have to take part in the other qualifying tournaments to find the 12 teams that will be competing in Japan. "They really put it to us".

"We didn't play badly at all hence losing two games on the buzzer", he said.

Losses to world and Commonwealth champions New Zealand (28-7), United States of America (33-12) and Spain (33-7) didn't tell the full story of a Wales team made up of six new caps - all of whom were playing top-flight sevens for the first time.

Stand-in captain Sione Molia reflected on the win.

The Canada-Ireland winner will face the England-Australia victor in the semi-finals.

While watching the New Zealand and Kenya match, the live feed cut out.

In Saturday's men's knockout section, Scotland lost in the quarter-finals to New Zealand, who scored three tries in the first 11 minutes and won 21-7, Harvey Elms scoring for the Scots.

It was also the first time Kenya failed to win a match in the Series since the London Sevens leg of the 2011/2012 season.

But that was not before the Cheetahs had taken a 12-10 lead at the break. The 39-point thriller against the U.S. also went as deep into added time.

However, in their final group match the US shot out of the blocks to opening the scoring and lead to the Australians struggling to regain possession. The newly-crowned World Rugby Men's Sevens Player of the Year 2018 Perry Baker was again influential and his smooth run on the outside set the tone.

Although there has been no official confirmation from World Rugby, a huge poster on display at The Sevens on Thursday said the 2019 edition to celebrate the tournament's 50th year would be held on December 5, 6 and 7.

The Cheetahs however, got a rude awakening of how much ground they would need to cover in the global game after being handed a 31-0 hiding by Dubai tournament defending champions South Africa in their opening assignment.
