Thanks for joining us on day one of the Emirates Airline Glasgow Sevens. Come back for more on day two and have your say using #glasgow7s or @irbsevens
Cup quarter finals
South Africa v USA
Fiji v England
Wales v Canada
New Zealand v Argentina
Bowl quarter finals
Samoa v Russia
Australia v Portugal
France v Kenya
Scotland v Spain
Stephen Gemmell, Scotland coach, on facing the qualifier tournament in London to remain a Series core team for next season: "It's massively disappointing but credit to the USA, they did what they needed to do and we underperformed today and we have just said that as a group. We now have nine games left to save our future and that starts tomorrow. I'm not interested in saying that starts next weekend. We showed glimpses but were not consistent enough and so we have to go into next weekend and deal with the reality of the situation we are in. We can't do anything else."
Tim Mikkelson, New Zealand captain, on closing in on an 11th Series title: "Definitely that's the exciting thing about it. But Argentina, you never know what they will bring, they have a lot of flair and passion in their jersey and it will be a tough game to win."
That's it for day one at the Emirates Airline Glasgow Sevens with New Zealand running out 28-0 winners over their hosts Scotland
He certainly is and shows why with New Zealand's fourth try of the match, 28-0 now with just seconds to go
The crowd thought they'd finally got a Scotland try to cheer against the All Blacks Sevens but referee Rhys Thomas got it spot on, the ball was held up
And that's the hat-trick for Sherwin Stowers to extend New Zealand's lead to 21-0
Tight games today but the canadian boys are through, looking forward to playing Wales in the am #Glasgow7s http://t.co/cWx61Zmokg— Sean Duke (@Sean Duke) 04/05/2013 20:30
But instead of the Scotland flag waving it's New Zealand's fans with plenty to celebrate early on with Sherwin Stowers crossing for two tries to give the Series leaders a 14-0 lead
And so we're into the final match of the day between hosts Scotland and Series leaders New Zealand
Through to the cup quarterfinals at #Glasgow7s Wales up first in the morning!! #CupHunting— Conor Trainor (@Conor Trainor) 04/05/2013 20:24
@paultreu Another brilliant opening day. Well done to all of you. Looking forward to tomorrow. #ssrugby #7RSA #Glasgow7s #proud— Owen MacFie (@Owen MacFie ) 04/05/2013 20:23
Paul Treu, South Africa coach, (Pool A winners): "The way the guys stuck at it, I take my hat off to them, they showed great character and we are happy to be in the quarter-finals. They (next opponents USA) have everythingn to play for but we do as well. They (his players) are playing for themselves and South Africa nad I am sure they are going to make us proud."
Final whistle blows for a 27-0 win to South Africa which secures top spot in Pool A. Canada will join them in the Cup quarter-finals as runners-up.
And Chris Dry scores try number five for South Africa after a mix-up in the Samoan in-goal area.
South Africa firmly in charge in the penultimate tie of the day. They lead Samoa 22-0 halfway through second half.— Glasgow7s (@Glasgow7s) 04/05/2013 20:11
Mat Hawkins, USA Sevens captain (Cup quarter-finalists): "We talked about it before, we just needed to put ourselves in the best position we can and after that we see how it pans out. Now it is up to Scotland, we did what we needed to do. I think there is a lot of joy, we knew we had this in us all season. Japan was a big step for us and now we just need to keep building. It is huge for us to remain as a core team, huge for the programme. We want this for Rugby in America. It is important we are a core team, to do well at Rugby World Cup Sevens. It is on our shoulders to carry that, we know that, but we enjoy that."
And another try for South Africa in the second half through Steven Hunt puts them ahead 22-0. Any way back for Samoa?
And that's number two for Justin Geduld - 15-0 to South Africa
And Cornal Hendricks adds a second try for South Africa after Justin Geduld opens the scoring, 10-0 after three minutes
Eagles hold on for the win!!! Final score USA 21-14 FRA. Critical win and they are on to the cup quarterfinals. #Glasgow7s— USA Rugby (@USA Rugby) 04/05/2013 19:55
The answer could be crucial as the Eagles hold on for a 21-14 victory and celebrate their achievement in reaching the Cup quarter-finals. That win piles the pressure onto Scotland who face New Zealand in the final match of day one at 19:21.
Folau Niua sells the French defence a dummy and glides over under the post - how crucial a score could that be for the USA and their survival hopes?
But Terry Bouhraoua scores France's second try and we're all tied up again at 14-14.
Hawley goes up again and recovers the kick. Eagles disorganize the France defense and Test's footwork puts him in for 5 points. #Glasgow7s— USA Rugby (@USA Rugby) 04/05/2013 19:43
Zach Test twists his way through the French defence to give his side a 14-7 lead at half-time
Tough outing for #Kenya7 at #Glasgow7s ...we soldier on. Let's go for the remaining points and play for pride.— Stephen Musyoka (@Stephen Musyoka ) 04/05/2013 19:40
Steeve Barry gives the French an early lead but Colin Hawley soon hits back for the USA, who haven't beaten France since the event in Las Vegas in 2012. All square here now at 7-7
That's how it finished so Fiji win Pool C and Argentina claim the runners-up spot to join them in the Cup quarter-finals. Australia and Spain will enter the Bowl tomorrow.
First try of the second half goes to Australia and Jordan Tuapou for a 17-12 lead. Although that lasts just seconds because Samisoni Viriviri scores under the posts and the conversion puts Fiji back in front at 19-17.
Let's go Eagles! It's there to be won! @USARugby #Glasgow7s— Dan Mason (@Dan Mason) 04/05/2013 19:17
And so it proves as tries from Jasa Veremalua and Emosi Mulevoro see Fiji hit the front on the stroke of half-time - 12-10 to the Pacific Islanders.
Cameron Clark doubles Australia's lead to 10-0 but you can never write off these Fijians!
And it doesn't take Pama Fou long to give Australia a 5-0 lead against Fiji with too much pace for the defence to handle
You have to wonder if England play at that level on day two of the #Glasgow7s, could they win their second title of the year?— In At The Side (@In At The Side) 04/05/2013 19:13
But before we get to that match, we have Australia and Fiji up next!
Important match coming up for #blitZbokke at the #Glasgow7s. Come on, you can beat Samoa, we believe in you! @paultreu #makeusproud— South African Rugby (@South African Rugby) 04/05/2013 18:55
England finish with a flourish with Christian Lewis-Pratt, Mike Ellery (2) and James Rodwell also touching down in the 46-0 win over Portugal. Will this be enough to secure England only a second Cup quarter-final appearance of the season?
Geraint John, Canada coach, (Cup quarter finalists): "It [the close matches] shows the quality of the teams. It wasn't our greatest start against Samoa but to come back like we did against them, some people would say we were probably quite lucky, but you make your own luck. We won those restarts to win, and I thought we were unlucky against South Africa. But three physical games there."
England pick up where they left off in the second half with Jeff Williams racing down the touchline to score
Two tries from Marcus Watson and one from Dan Norton give England a 15-0 lead at half-time. That try from Norton takes him past 200 points for the season.
Can't wait for the #Blitzbokke match! Make us proud @paultreu and the boys!! #Glasgow7s.— Yolanda Tsembeyi (@Yolanda Tsembeyi) 04/05/2013 18:59

Kenya hit back with two minutes to go through Willy Ambaka, but miss the conversion and so trail 14-10.
Half time and Canada are leading 14-5 but as they know only too well after today a Sevens match can go right down to the wire!
Wales coach Paul John, Pool D winners: "Very satisfying, topped the pool which was always potentially tough with USA having so much on it, we always have tough games with France, and Russia are improving. Hopefully we can look forward to tomorrow though and see what we have got. It is nice the boys can relax a little bit not being part of the danger zone but we still want to achieve and fulfill out potential."
The lead doesn't last long though as Nathan Hirayama converts Taylor Paris' try, before Ciaran Hearn finds it too easy to waltz through the Kenyan defence. Mike Friday won't be happy with that try conceded and Canada now lead 14-5.
Injera has the Kenyan fans dancing in the stands after scoring the opening try of the match, they lead Canada 5-0
#GoCanadaGo at the #Glasgow7s. Big match right now against @Kenya7s. #CupHunting— Jeff Hull (@Jeff Hull) 04/05/2013 18:27
Fantastic team score, set up by Bondarev on the right and finished off by Lazarenko in the left hand corner FT #RUS 22-28 #WAL #Glasgow7s— Rugby Union Russia (@Rugby Union Russia) 04/05/2013 18:26
Alex Walker increases Wales lead but the Russians refuse to give up and are rewarded when Vladislav Lazarenko touches down to make the final score 28-22. Wales top Pool D after winning all three matches and are into the Cup quarter-finals tomorrow.
Russia gift Wales a try with a lofted pass that Tavis Knoyle easily picks off and jogs over the line. Plenty of time though for the Russian comeback and in fact it takes just over a minute for Stanislav Bondarev to touch down, 21-15 and three minutes to go
End-to-end game with @WelshRugbyUnion retaking lead through Knight's second try. #Rugby7Bears very much in it: #RUS 10-14 #WAL HT #Glasgow7s— Rugby Union Russia (@Rugby Union Russia) 04/05/2013 18:17
Despite defeat in opening match to USA, #RWC7s hosts @russiarugby have impressed on day one of #Glasgow7s http://t.co/BiCbYCkRtR— Sevens World Series (@Sevens World Series) 04/05/2013 18:14
Vasily Artemyev turns the Welsh defence inside out to find space for Vladimir Ostroushko to score his second try, but Wales go 80 metres for Chris Knight to touch down again and it's the Welsh leading 14-10 at the break.
Vladimir Ostroushko has given Russia the perfect start, but Wales hit back with a try by Chris Knight and the conversion gives them a 7-5 lead with two minutes to go in the first half
So now we're on to Wales versus Russia. In their last matches the Welsh sneaked home against USA, while Russia were denied at the death by a French penalty.
That Spanish try proved to be the final score in this match so Argentina win 40-5 and will now hope that Fiji beat Australia so they reach the Cup quarter-finals.
No let up from Argentina with Gaston Revol and Ignacio Pasman tries making it 40-0 with just under two minutes to go, but then Joan Losada picks up a loose ball and races away to get Spain on the board.
Tries from Facundo Panceyra Garrido and Joaquin Diaz Bonilla increase Argentina's lead to 26-0 at half-time
The action has resumed at Scotstoun Stadium and Joaquin Diaz Bonilla gives Argentina a 7-0 lead against Spain.
Unlucky Scotland. Looks like we're destined to lose our core status #glasgow7s— Rory McAusland (@Rory McAusland) 04/05/2013 17:28

And 29-7 proves to be the final score and England keep alive their hopes of reaching the Cup quarter-finals for only the second time this season with that win
Much better play from #England7s than I've seen for quite some time. Glad you all woke up in time for this match! #glasgow7s— Sue (@Sue) 04/05/2013 17:24
It's a different England team in this match against Scotland than what was swept aside by New Zealand in their previous one and Marcus Watson scores a fourth try for Ben Ryan's men. Christian Lewis-Pratt then makes an interception to race away to make it 29-7.
That lead grows to 19-7 after Williams scores his second try of the match just before half-time
Jeff Williams adds another for England but Scott Riddell brings the crowd to their feet by running in his seventh try of the season to make it 12-7 with a minute to go in the first half
Tough loss to South Africa, 1 and 1 going into the final game vs Kenya! #mustwin #glasgow7s— Harry Jones (@Harry Jones) 04/05/2013 17:12
Much to the dismay of the home crowd it's Dan Norton who scores the opening try for England for 5-0 lead.
Good on ya NZL! Got the job done! #Glasgow7s got to give it up 2 Portugal 4 hanging in there. 1 day u will defeat them?— Pegasus Retimanu (@Pegasus Retimanu) 04/05/2013 17:07
Rocky Khan scores a fifth for the All Blacks Sevens and then Pita Ahki finishes things off with his first ever World Series try for a 40-0 win over Portugal.
Belgium Tuatagaloa and Ben Lam add their names to the list of try scorers and New Zealand now lead 26-0 with just under two minutes to go.
Prediction comes true again with Kurt Baker getting New Zealand's second try to make it 14-0 at half-time
Portugal started brightly but it's New Zealand who break out from their own 22 for captain Tim Mikkelson to wriggle out of a tackle and score the first try. The conversion means the All Blacks Sevens have now scored 1,001 points this season.
Tulolo Tulolo dots down for Samoa's fourth try and seals the 26-0 win over Kenya. The fans were cheering 'Let's Go Kenya, Let's Go' to the final whistle but they weren't to be rewarded with a try.
Tom Iosefo try takes Samoa out to 21-0 ahead, they aren't going to let another win slip through their fingers like against Canada
Having a sweet day at #glasgow7s http://t.co/5DADJ5x8i4— Gregor Gordon (@Gregor Gordon) 04/05/2013 16:36
It's Samoa though who score next through Mikaele Pesamino and go into half-time leading 14-0
It's Samoa who start the better with Reupena Levasa dotting down the first try for a 7-0 lead. The Kenyans are singing and dancing in the stands and trying to cheer their team to hit back.
The crowd are going wild again so it must be Kenya back in action ... against Samoa in a must-win match for both sides after opening defeats
South Africa's Frankie Horne after win over Canada: "The rugby was not pretty but we survived, hats off to the guys and to Canada who really gave us a run for our money. It's very good competition, the none core teams in the past have come up and performed and it shows how massive this game is getting."
Sadly Natalia they couldn't do that, as South Africa scored with the last play of the match through Stephan Dippenaar to snatch a 17-14 victory and make it two wins from two in Glasgow
Come on Canada, all you have to do is HOLD ON TO IT!!! #glasgow7s— Natalia Palamo (@Natalia Palamo) 04/05/2013 16:18
Try for Sean Duke extends Canada's lead to 14-5 after Nathan Hirayama just slots the conversion between the posts. But South Africa's response is instant as Canada can't stop the flyer that is Seabelo Senatla. Conversion missed so it's 14-12 to Canada.
Paul Delport looks delighted with that opening try for South Africa, as the Tokyo Sevens champions look for their second victory of day one. He knew exactly where the try line was and was sharper than anyone else when the penalty was given against Canada. But Conor Trainor undoes all the good work by South Africa and scores under the posts to give Canada a 7-5 lead.

Wales with a try at the death through James Davies beat the USA 26-21. That could be a significant result for @scotlandteam . . .— Glasgow7s (@Glasgow7s) 04/05/2013 16:00
Wales have snatched it at the death with James Davies just evading the clutches of Matt Hawkins. 26-21 to Wales ... if USA could have held on that would have given them a boost in their bid to avoid relegation from the Series

All USA so far in this half and guess what, it's that man Nick Edwards again to put them ahead for the first time at 21-14. But Wales gather the restart and Owen Williams races away to score. The conversion is missed so the Eagles lead 21-19 with just over two minutes to go.
Gareth Davies puts Wales back in front but then Zach Test sidesteps the defence and ties us up at 14-14 at half-time. Some great tries in this match!
Nick Edwards just can't stop scoring, bringing his side back level at 7-7 with Wales in the battle of two sides who won their opening matches
Russia's two-try scorer Vasily Artemyev, after defeat to France: "That was disappointing. Our first game was a bit of a shambles, but America were in great shape. We came out fresh here and came back fighting, I thought we dominated the match and just unfortunate there at the end to lose. We are all looking forward to the World Cup in June, and we are trying to build a good squad for that."
Wow #france7s make massive gamble kick2goal 45 away and win the game against #russia7s who really played so fab congrats #glasgow7s— Makena (@Makena) 04/05/2013 15:41
Paul Albaladejo holds his nerve to kick a penalty from near the 10m line to rescue a 15-14 win for France over Russia
Great saving tackle from Terry Bouhraoua to haul down Vladislav Lazarenko just short of the line and keep it at 14-12 to Russia with less than two minutes to go
Go on Russia, some brilliant play at #glasgow7s gonna be dangerous on Moscow home turf in June #7'sWC— michaela staniford (@michaela staniford) 04/05/2013 15:27
A second try for Artemyev gives Russia a 14-7 lead at half-time
Big cheer as Russia's Vasily Artemyev goes over for the opening try after a good run by Vladimir Ostroushko, lead doesn't last long though as Paul Albaladejo try levels it up at 7-7
Did you know ... France have used the fewest players of any core side this season with 15. Fiji have used the most with 32.
So now it's swiftly on to France v Russia at Scotstoun
Joji Baleviani Raqamate gets his name on the scoreboard just before the final whistle to secure a 28-10 win for Fiji and break through the 200 point barrier himself for the season
Lucas De Vincenzi thought he'd sneaked round for Argentina but he put a foot in touch so Fiji still lead 21-5 with two minutes to go
Half time sees Fiji leading 14-5 with Nemani Nagusa scoring their second try against Argentina
Setefano Cakau scores his 77th career try for Fiji as they lead 7-5 v Argentina #glasgow7s http://t.co/DzlawXwUVv— Sevens World Series (@Sevens World Series) 04/05/2013 15:02
Fiji concede their first points of the tournament with Anibal Panceyra Garrido squeezing over in the corner, 5-0 to Argentina
Australia bounce back from that opening loss by running in seven tries against Spain for a 42-14 win.
That try for Lewis Holland takes the Australian past 150 points this season. His side now lead 28-7 after Pama Fou dots down his second shortly afterwards
Australia regain the lead just before half-time with Pama Fou racing away to touch down after Gonzalo Bermejo's try had levelled it at 7-7.
James Stannard scores the opening try for Australia as they look to get their campaign back on track after opening defeat
Time to start the second round of matches with Australia and Spain, who both lost their opening matches to Argentina (17-10) and Fiji (45-0) respectively

Important win for Scotland as they bid to avoid relegation from the Series, 26-5 over Portugal
The crowd are on their feet as Colin Shaw grabs his second try to put Scotland 14-5 ahead against Portugal
The crowd is silenced as Goncalo Foro scores for Portugal, but Scotland still lead 7-5 with a minute to go in the first half
40th try in the Sevens World Series for Colin Shaw gets Scotland on the board to the delight of the home crowd
The cheerleaders and Saltires are out, must be time for Scotland against Portugal
THis sesaon's top try scorer Dan Norton finally gets England on the board but at 31-5 it's too little too late for Ben Ryan's men against the Series leaders.
All smiles for New Zealand as Kurt Baker and Sherwin Stowers touch down to give their side a 31-0 lead with nearly four minutes still to go against England
Tries from Kaka, Curry and Lam see NZ lead 17-0 at half-time against England. @scotlandteam are on in 14 minutes.— Glasgow7s (@Glasgow7s) 04/05/2013 13:49

Great strength from captain Tim Mikkelson to avoid touch just long enough to flick it backwards for Scott Curry to score number two for New Zealand
Gillies Kaka gets the opening try for New Zealand, 5-0
Canada coach Geraint John: "We are a good side, we know we are, we have been in three Plates this season, so it is good to get that win against Samoa. Pleased for the boys.
"You do [look over your shoulder] a bit, but we'd rather be in our position than those below us. We have a tough pool, at least we knew it would be a physical day, but if we perform like we did in that last five minutes we will be okay."
Now for England and New Zealand ... can the All Blacks Sevens wrap up the Series crown this weekend in Glasgow?
Big call that on biggest upset of the Series, what other ones would rival it? #Glasgow7s

No comeback for the crowd favourites as they give away a penalty, allowing South Africa to kick it into touch for a 17-14 win in the battle of the African nations in Pool A. Next up will be Samoa v Canada.
The Kenyan fans are going mad in the stands as Collins Injera scores but they still trail by three with less than 30 seconds on the clock
Paul Delport dives over in the corner to give South Africa a 17-7 lead with three and a half minutes to go against Kenya
Cornal Hendricks edges South Africa back ahead for 12-7 half time lead but every time Kenya get the ball the crowd are going wild at Scotstoun Stadium
Willy Ambaka draws the scores level though, running from inside his own half to the delight of the crowd, and those watching on social media! Use #Glasgow7s to have your say, or @irbsevens. kenya lead 7-5
Lovely link up play between two of South Africa's stalwarts as Frankie Horne gifts Paul Delport a try in the corner for a 5-0 lead against African rivals Kenya.
Time now for crowd favourites Kenya, up against Tokyo winners South Africa
That was USA's fourth highest score in Sevens World Series history
Great opening from USA, showing they mean business in their quest to avoid relegation from the Series, Top scorers of the day so far after a 48-5 win over Russia in Pool D. Biggest cheer though was for Russia's try after the hooter from Stanislav Bondarev.

No fairytale caomeback for France as Gareth Davies' penalty gave Wales the cushion of an eight point lead and they held on to win 22-14.
Maybe ... Terry Bouhraoua cuts deficit to five points with converted try
Steeve Barry finally gets France on the board against the Welsh, four minutes to go ... trailing 19-7 but can the French turn this around?
