Argentina have been defeated by New Zealand in the London Sevens. South Africa came from 14-0 down to see off Fiji to win the London trophy for the first time since 2005.
Earlier New Zealand’s 31-14 quarter-final win over Argentina saw them crowned champions with a round to spare ahead of next week’s 2011 series finale in Edinburgh.
South Africa’s 24 points for winning in London means they are third in the standings with 116 points, behind England (121) and ahead of Samoa (112) and Fiji (110).
New Zealand may have an unbeatable lead there will now be a four-way battle to finish series runners-up in Scotland.
The boys in Argentina Rugby Shirts deserved better.
