NZ, Fiji, England, Wales unbeaten in Glasgow 7s
GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) -Wales beat South Africa 17-5 for the first time in the sevens rugby world series to join New Zealand, Fiji and England as the only unbeaten teams in the Glasgow Sevens after the first day Saturday.
South Africa had won the 27 previous matches against Wales, but this time the latter scored the first two tries to Rhys Shellard and Ifan Evans, conceded a last-minute try at the end of the half to Jamba Ulengo, scored the only try of the second half through Tom Grabham, and hung on.
That secured first place in Pool D after earlier wins over host Scotland and Russia, and set up a quarterfinal on Sunday with Australia.
The other quarterfinals are: England vs. defending champion South Africa, Fiji vs. Samoa, New Zealand vs. Argentina.
