The match against New Zealand was an annihilation, as the Kiwis ran the South Africans ragged. That lead was extended to 24-0 at the break after they scored three more tries.

Scotland's men beat Papua New Guinea and Malaysia without conceding a point before losing 26-5 to South Africa in the final match of Saturday's programme, while Wales, having beaten Uganda and Sri Lanka, lost 21-17 against the Fijians.

There are 283 Canadian athletes competing in Gold Coast, of which 52 are from the Island or who live and train full-time in Greater Victoria.
