Woodman also chipped in with another brace as New Zealand showed no mercy to an Irish team who had earlier eliminated England 19-14 in the first round.

They are now due to face the challenge of England, who battled to a tightly fought 19-15 win over Samoa. The stage is set for a very special and innovative tournament - the biggest Rugby World Cup Sevens, the most digitally-engaged, most viewed, and we hope the most competitive Rugby World Cup Sevens to date.

New Zealand will play the United States in Saturday's semi-finals.

This time it was Michaela Blyde's turn to get in on the try-scoring with a well-taken hat-trick.

OIympic champions Fiji were sensational in beating Argentina 43-7.

New Zealand, meanwhile, were anything but impressive as they scraped past France 12-7 to progress.

Three first half yellow cards saw the All Blacks Sevens playing with only six men for the majority of the half and trailing 7-0 at the break. They will have to be considerably better to get past Fiji.

Their semi-final opponents New Zealand have also won two World Cups and would edge into the outright lead with a win, while South Africa have never won even one. They will meet the United States of America in their semi-final on Sunday morning.
