"It's been an emotional one, but I'm really proud of the girls, the courage they showed", Australian coach John Manenti said.

The next round is in South Africa next weekend with New Zealand drawn against the hosts, Samoa and Zimbabwe.

"We lost five games here previous year".

That result sent out some warning signs, and the Springbok Sevens were then well and truly outplayed by England in their Cup quarter-final as they plunged to a humbling 22-5 defeat.

Britt Benn and Kaili Lukan then scored their second tries of the day in a 21-14 win over France that gave the Canadians first place in Pool C.

Stand-in captain Sione Molia reflected on the win.

But that was not before the Cheetahs had taken a 12-10 lead at the break.

The USA had knocked out Fiji in the quarter-finals and Australia in the semis.

The Blitzboks went through the gears early in the second and looked like the side that had won the last two titles in Dubai, Du Plessis grabbing a second with Werner Kok, Selvyn Davids and Rosko Specman getting their name on the scoreboard, the latter delighted the crowd with his electric footwork.

The New Zealand men's and women's teams have also won Commonwealth Games gold and World Cup gold this year.
