Injury has forced another change to the men's rugby sevens team a day out from the start of their Gold Coast Commonwealth Games campaign.

South Africa's third and final pool game, against Kenya, kicks off at 04:27 on Saturday.

South Africa took a 33-0 lead into half time, and by the time they were done they had scored a total of 8 tries.

Sam Dickson delivered the ideal long ball to send Ware over for his second just after the break.

The medal is Drinkhall's second gold and sixth overall at the Commonwealth Games, whereas Pitchford picks up his first Commonwealth gold after previously winning three silvers and three bronzes.

Canadian captain Ghislaine Landry opened the scoring in their semi clash with the defending Olympic champions.

England's women were beaten 26-5 by New Zealand before rallying to hold off Canada 24-19 and secure their place on the podium.

Goss' counterpart, Abigail Brown, replied but Natasha Hunt missed the conversion.

The match against New Zealand was an annihilation, as the Kiwis ran the South Africans ragged.

Blyde also pulled of two try-saving tackles, and then Woodman shut the gate with a runaway down the touchline at the finish.
