(ISN) – Defending champions Fiji and current series leaders South Africa are the only two sides with 100% records heading into the Cup quarter finals after an enthralling opening day of action at the Tokyo Sevens, round seven of the HSBC Sevens World Series.

The top two seeds in the standings will face Japan and Scotland respectively at the Prince Chichibu Memorial Ground, with the hosts progressing to their first Cup quarter final since 2000.

Despite losing to France, Japan drew with Argentina 14-14 and beat Samoa 26-12 to qualify.

In the other Cup quarter finals New Zealand, who suffered only an eighth defeat in 61 matches to trans-Tasman rivals Australia, will face Canada and France await England.

 

Tokyo will break its own broadcast record this weekend with 20 broadcasters taking live or delayed live coverage totaling a record 226 hours, reaching 301 million homes in 145 countries.
