Blitzboks find gold in Glasgow
July 27, 2014
South Africa ended New Zealand's dominance at the Commonwealth Games, winning the gold medal match in an enthralling final at a sold-out Ibrox Stadium 17-12.

Seabelo Senata stole the show, scoring his 10th and 11th tries of the Games to help the Blitzboks better their bronze medal from Delhi four years ago and become the first side to beat the All Blacks Sevens at the Commonwealth Games.

After a world-record 171,000 fans packed into Ibrox for two fine days of action, the crucial medal matches have provided more thrilling entertainment, two years before Sevens takes its place at the Olympic Games in Rio.

In the bronze medal match Australia, silver medalists four years ago, beat Samoa 24-0 thanks to two more tries for the impressive Greg Jeloudev in what was new coach Geraint John's first tournament in charge having made the switch from Canada last month.

The defending Commonwealth Games champions New Zealand booked their place in the gold medal final after a 19-7 win over Tasman neighbours Australia with Scott Curry scoring two decisive second half tries while Cornal Hendricks scored twice to give the Blitzboks a 35-7 win against Samoa in their semi final.
