- England Men through to Cup quarters
England Women Sevens fell 19-14 to Fiji in the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series in Paris and will play Spain in Sunday's 7th place play-off final (15:21 BST).
Earlier in the day England were beaten 48-7 by France in the Cup quarter-finals. They also lost their opening game of the tournament on Friday 12-24 to New Zealand, before impressive wins over Ireland (31-12) and Wales (45-12) respectively.
England wasted no time, and worked their way deep into Fijian territory through a series of impressive runs, nabbing their first try within two minutes: Heather Fisher pouncing on a wayward Fiji lineout to saunter in for the game's opening score.
A yellow card for Fiji's Ana Maria Naimasi handed England a one-player advantage, and they took immediate action - Abbie Brown was found in space on the left flank and dotted down under the sticks for an easy conversion, making it 14-0.
With Fiji restored to full compliment, it was Naimasi who bolted away to put the islanders back in contention - the missed kick made it 14-5 at the break.
Fiji reduced the deficit to just two points after a Miriama Naiobasali score early in the second half, and took the lead shortly after through a penalty try.
Despite two England yellow cards, James Bailey's side nearly snatched victory at the end from an Amy Wilson Hardy breakaway - but she was thwarted 10 metres out.
Earlier in the day, England started well against France, and held onto possession from kick-off. Staying calm under pressure, Debroah Fleming was found out wide on her own line, and ran the length of the pitch inside the opening two minutes to score the game's first try.
But France hit back, scoring three tries in quick succession, two from Fanny Horta, and one from Marjorie Mayans to hand the hosts a 17-7 lead at the break.
French momentum continued into the second half, as Mayans pounced quickly on a stray ball to cross for her second, and she was joined on the scoreboard by Anne Ciofani, Caroline Drouin and Shannon Izar (2) to claim a home win.
