Paul Treu, South Africa coach (Cup winners): "I think looking back at the season we had our highs and our lows, but it is just good for us to come back and finish the season on a high. We are almost going to be the only team to win three tournaments up and until now. We had some bad moments, but those bad moments were needed to make up for our results towards the end of the season and to give credit to our guys and those back home for having the faith and the belief in the team that we could stay the distance."
Paul Delport, South Africa: "So proud of the boys, everyone stood up this weekend. Our preparation wasn't great this weekend, lots of injuries, but especially for Seabelo [Senatla] and Justin [Geduld], to give them a send off, they are off the U20s, they were two of our stars this weekend.
"It means a lot [to beat New Zealand]. Once you get to the top teams, it used to be three or four, but now it is like eight, and to come out on top of that is just extra special."

New Zealand aren't done though yet, Gilles Kaka is off and feeds Trinity Spooner-Neera. New Zealand, though, can't field the restart probably and South Africa hang on for a 28-21 victory
Watching the #Glasgow7s finals is getting me really excited for the #Twickenham7s next weekend!!! #7s #Rugby #SafariTheme— Samantha Zubrzycki (@Samantha Zubrzycki) 05/05/2013 20:06
South Africa sense victory and Cornal Hendricks crawls his way over the line, 28-14 with less than 90 seconds to go.
We thought Senatla was going to be in again after a great kick ahead on the run to put the ball back in field but he couldn't gather and knocked it on under pressure from Kurt Baker. A mistake from the resulting scrum and Philip Snyman pounces, picking up the ball to give South Africa a 21-14 lead.
New Zealand defending on their own line and Sherwin Stowers is yellow carded. South Africa capitalise and Steven Hunt runs round behind the posts, making the conversion easier and we're tied against at 14-14.
Half-time in the Cup final and New Zealand lead South Africa 14-7
Tomasi Cama take a bow. Great little grubber #glasgow7s— Michael James (@Michael James) 05/05/2013 19:54
Neither side can keep hold of the ball in the New Zealand 22, but Mikkelson puts boot to ball and takes his side where they want to be, in South Africa's half. A piece of magic from Tomasi Cama, a little chip through and Kurt Baker just has to touch it down. 14-7 to the Series champions.
Explosive start to the Cup final as first Seabela Senatla goes over for South Africa and then Lote Raikabula breaks through. So, 7-7 with just over seven minutes of the first half to go
England coach Ben Ryan: "In the semi final we made three or four unforced errors and that gave them the game, thought we could have got through it but it wasn't to be and we need to keep building on this. It's just good to get some momentum. Wales have been outstanding all year, Paul John does an outstanding job."
The fireworks are going off so it's the big one ... South Africa v New Zealand for the Glasgow Sevens title.
Just had a call from a nz radio station wanting to talk superruby. Umm nope is my answer - the #Glasgow7s final is on! Call back later :)— Brenden Nel (@Brenden Nel) 05/05/2013 19:42

Grrrrr can't believe we lost that at the death #glasgow7s #wales— Owain Jones (@Owain Jones) 05/05/2013 19:35
Dan Norton had a couple of chances but was hauled down by Alex Walker and then put a foot in touch when evading Walker's desperate lunge. They kept pushing though and Sam Edgerley is put through for the winning score, England win 24-21.
England - just as they did in their semi final with South Africa - come out firing in the second half and tries from James Rodwell and Dan Norton cut the deficit to 21-17 ... will the two missed conversions prove costly for England?
Wales add two more tries through Alex Walker and Rhys Shellard to lead 21-7 at half-time
Pow! Chris Knight scores a cracking try, the Llandovery player has been very impressive 7-7 #Glasgow7s— Welsh Rugby Union (@Welsh Rugby Union) 05/05/2013 19:22
James Rodwell scores the opening try of the match but Wales hit back quickly with Chris Knight racing clear to score. The conversion is good so we're all square at 7-7.
Matt Hawkins, USA captain, Plate winners: "After we qualified for the quarters I said we are actually on the way up. We play some good rugby, and that is what we want to do and we want to get better. Obviously we would have liked to make the semis but we have the Plate. Now we have to big again next weekend. The World Cup that is the one we are coming for and for us we think we can take pretty much anyone just we have to get it right on the day. There was a lot of emotion yesterday so it was tough to get up this morning and it showed in the first game. But we had a look in the mirror and said we had to make it count, and we did against Fiji and here so great to finish off like this."
So time for the penultimate match now with England taking on Wales in the third place play-off. England have lost three players to injury in Marcus Watson, Tom Powell and Mat Turner - will that count against them as they face a familiar foe?
@USASevensRugby performance this weekend at #Glasgow7s shows huge progress! #RealSportofRugbyvsFootball!— Steph Thomson (@Steph Thomson) 05/05/2013 19:08
And that's the final score so USA win a second successive Plate final. Great tournament for the Eagles who secured their core team status for 2013/14 yesterday and now win the Plate.
A great saving tackle from Matias Moroni denies Shalom Suniula a try, but the Eagles' fans don't have long to wait for a try as Zach Test reaches out for the line. 17-7 to USA.
The Eagles hit the front for the first time as Zach Test makes the break and then decides to send Nick Edwards over yet another try in Glasgow, 12-7 to the USA
USA turnover the ball and Andrew Durutalo dummies and dots down with two seconds to go in the first half, but the conversion is missed so Argentina lead 7-5.
Thanks for all the support at #Glasgow7s We're looking to improve on our result next weekend at the London Sevens.— Conor Trainor (@Conor Trainor) 05/05/2013 18:55
Argentina scores first with a chip kick and chase into the try zone, conversion good. USA 0 - 7 ARG #Glasgow7s— USA Rugby (@USA Rugby) 05/05/2013 18:50
Michael O'Connor, Australia coach (Bowl winners): "Three pretty tough matches today, beating Samoa in the semi and then Kenya in the final. We played Kenya in the Bowl in Vegas and they didn't play like that. Most of our squad are under 20 and hopefully down the track we'll get some pay back. We nearly beat Fiji on day one but we went the right way today and I am really proud of them."

Pama Fou scores his fifth try of the weekend in the final minute to give Australia a 12-5 win over Kenya in the Bowl final.
Vasily Artemyev, Russia: "This was really a big kind of building brick for us and we are really looking forward to Twickenham next weekend, it's really important for us in terms of qualifying for the following year's World Series. Obviously we didn't start very well against the US but we came within a grasp of all the games we lost, a lot of positives and hopefully we can sort out those mistakes, take them out of our game and we should win games.
Playing in this tournament is huge, just huge for us. It was either playing all these tough matches and really gelling together as a squad or being elsewhere in a training camp. This is huge for us, unfortuantely we didn't get the best result we hoped for but we are really looking forward to next week. It's been a great event here, great atmosphere, a great crowd.
90 seconds left for Kenya to find another score...can they do it? Let us know @irbsevens or #glasgow7s
Willy Ambaka shows great strength to hold of Lewis Holland as Kenya hit back and Ambaka's offload sets up Biko Adema to cross the line. Adema misses the conversion however, and the score is 7-5
come one shujaas!!!RT @KenyaRugby247: Kenya 0-7 Australia. Halftime. Bowl Final. #Glasgow7s— Jaymo (@Jaymo) 05/05/2013 18:29
Lewis Holland breaks the deadlock and gives Australia a 7-0 lead but this is a very physical encounter between them and the Kenyans.
Which of these sides, Kenya and Australia, will go unbeaten on day two? The winner will also take home the Bowl from Glasgow.

Congratulations to @FranceRugby7s who win the Shield at #Glasgow7s by beating Russia 21-17— Sevens World Series (@Sevens World Series) 05/05/2013 18:10
Julien Candelon scores again to leave Russia needing to score twice if they are to leave Glasgow with the Shield
Superb try by @SaintsRugby's @VA_rugby who scores his second of the #glasgow7s shield final and 6th of tournament #RUS7 12-14 #FRA7— Rugby Union Russia (@Rugby Union Russia) 05/05/2013 18:05
Julien Candelon breaks a tackle and races round to make the conversion easier for Terry Bouhraoua and France now lead 14-5, well they did until Vasily Artemyev shows his pace to run his own half to cut the deficit to just two points with four minutes to go.
Good support from Jean Baptiste Mazoue sees him score and France now lead 7-5 at half-time.
So we're into the first of the finals now and Russia have drawn first blood in the Shield Final with Vasily Artemyev scoring the first try against France. 5-0 to the hosts of Rugby World Cup Sevens.
So this will be the third time that South Africa and New Zealand have met in a Cup final this season. Will it be third time lucky for the All Blacks Sevens after losses in Las Vegas and Tokyo? Tell us who you think will win the title via @irbsevens or #Glasgow7s
So it's Boks v Blacks in final at #Glasgow7s tonight. Always a great way to finish a weekend. Come on #BlitzBokke ! @bokrugby— kelvin watt (@kelvin watt) 05/05/2013 17:40
Absolutely gutted for Wales 7's! Played fantastic, just a shame they couldn't get the result #glasgow7s— Emily Cutmore (@Emily Cutmore) 05/05/2013 17:40
Pita Ahki picks up and drives to within a metre of the line before finding Lote Raikabula in support to break Welsh hearts and make certain of victory for the defending Glasgow champions, 26-14 to New Zealand. They will face South Africa in the Cup final.
Gillies Kaka steps the man in front of him and runs away for his second try of the match. Great conversion from out wide by Cama ties up the score and that man then puts the All Blacks Sevens in front once more at 19-14.
Great pressure from Wales and they get their reward as Adam Thomas dots down to make it 14-7 at half-time
Cracking try by @WelshRugbyUnion against NZ to draw level! #Glasgow7s— Liam Richards (@Liam Richards) 05/05/2013 17:27
First try of this semi final is from Gillies Kaka but Lee Williams hits back for Wales and we're all tied up at 7-7 with 30 seconds of the first half to go.
Paul Delport, after beating England: "It was a fantastic win, we went back to basics and it is great to be in our third final of the season. We feel we used our get out of jail card yesterday against Canada, but we can now look forward to the final. The young guys are great, when we have players like Kyle, and Branco and Mark at home, what these guys bring is great. Unfortunately we will lose them next week as they go to the U20 JWC but at 19-years-old to be delivering what they do is great."
Next up Wales v New Zealand ... can the Welsh discover the secret to stopping the men in black?
The Wales sevens matches make good small revision breaks #Glasgow7s— Rhys Richards (@Rhys Richards) 05/05/2013 17:18
England came back in the second half, but our boitjies held their nerve. Well done @BlitzBokke, now on to the final. #Glasgow7s— Clinton Erasmus (@Clinton Erasmus) 05/05/2013 17:17
No chance for England though as South Africa boot the ball into touch for a 24-17 win and a place in the Cup final against either Wales or Series champions New Zealand
Cornal Hendricks is away for South Africa's fourth try ... but a converted try from England in the last 20 seconds could still force extra-time
Whatever England coach Ben Ryan said at half-time has worked wonders as tries from Dan Nortojn and John Brake have brought England back to 19-17 after the conversion is missed.
Seabelo Senatla, is simply born for Sevens-Rugby! What a Flyer! #glasgow7s— Heintje Wessels (@Heintje Wessels) 05/05/2013 17:04
Senatla steps the England defence and races in for his second try of the first half, before Chris Dry adds another to make it 19-5 to South Africa
And it's that young flyer Seabelo Senatla who races through the England defence to open the scoring, but the response is swift as John Brake powers away. Conversion is missed though so South Africa lead 7-5
It was incredible to watch my brother @Brett024 score a try for @USARugby! Next they'll face Argentina in the Plate Finals! #glasgow7s— Kieran Thompson (@Kieran Thompson) 05/05/2013 16:57

A try from Anibal Panceyra Garrido means Argentina win 22-7 and will battle USA for the Plate final later
Facundo Panceyra Garrido puts Argentina further ahead with another try - 15-7 now which means Canada will need to score twice if they are to give us that North American Plate final
Much better from Canada. Keeping the ball and pressuring in defence. Work play into Arg half, loose ball Ardron strikes 10-7 #Glasgow7s— Patrick Johnston (@Patrick Johnston) 05/05/2013 16:43
But Tyler Ardron gets Canada on the scoreboard with less than a minute to go until half-time, 10-7 to Argentina. Canada almost got another but Conor Trainor was stopped just short by some desperate defence
What an outstanding win for USA!!! 22-7 against Fiji. Incredible speed from @Carlin_Isles chasing down a flying Fijian. #Glasgow7s #7USA— Leah Brewster (@Leah Brewster) 05/05/2013 16:39
Argentina might have other ideas as Franco Sabato and Joaquin Diaz Bonilla have put them 10-0 ahead
So is an all North American Plate final on the cards? Canada will have to beat Argentina for that to happen.
The fastest guy in world rugby Carlin Isles chases down a Fijian break and the resulting pass is dropped, so the USA are through to the Plate final after a 22-7 win over the Pacific Islanders.
Fiji's response though is instant as they go from behind their own line to the other for a try by Samisoni Viriviri. 17-7 ... is a comeback on in the last four minutes? Maybe not because Zach Test has just scored a fourth try for the Americans.
Seventh try of the weekend for Nick Edwards means it's now 17-0 to the USA
“@USARugby: USA 10-0 FIJ at the half! Eagles did a good job closing in on Fiji's last posession to stop them. #Glasgow7s”. COME ON USA— Dominique Marie (@Dominique Marie) 05/05/2013 16:23
And it gets better for the USA as Brett Thompson scores a second try to make it 10-0 at half-time
"Born in the USA" blasts out at Scotstoun Stadium as Folau Niua supports well to take Nick Edwards pass and score the opening try, 5-0 to the Americans midway through the first half
So now attention turns to the Plate and the first semi final between USA and Fiji
Well played guys #Kenya7s. March on soldiers. Bring this one home. #Glasgow7s #LoudAndProud— Duncan Ndegwa (@Duncan Ndegwa) 05/05/2013 16:14
Scotland have the last word with Byron McGuigan scoring at the death but it is too little too late as Kenya reach the Bowl final to play Australia with a 24-19 win.
Scotland have come out fighting in this second half and trail Kenya 24-14 now with 2 minutes still left on the clock. Can they do this? The crowd sure hope so...

Sean Maitland, British and Irish Lion, at the Glasgow Sevens: "It has been great, Glasgow has really turned the weather on for the Sevens. It has been nice to see some running rugby from all these countries. It is good to see (New Zealand win another title). I know a couple of boys in the team and Gordon Tietjens has been running the New Zealand machine for a while and they know how to win championships. Awesome for those boys to win the championship in Glasgow and hopefully we will see some more championships in the future.
"It (Sevens in New Zealand) is really popular, especially with Sevens becoming an Olympic sport it is going to add that much more to the sport and I think in the future guys will probably have to choose either rugby Fifteens or Sevens so it is starting to become like that. It is great. I haven't played Sevens but I would love to get out there and try and give it a go."
Felix Ayange scores the first try of the match, sprinting down the touch line to outpace Colin Gregor and cross the line.
Australia reach the Bowl Final, beating Samoa 17-12. Next up, the second Bowl semi: @scotlandteam v Kenya.— Glasgow7s (@Glasgow7s) 05/05/2013 15:48
But it is Australia who steal the win at the death, with some lovely ball retention enabling Peter Schuster to set up Cameron Clark who scores in the corner for his 10th World Series try and a 17-12 victory. Next up, the hosts....show them your support at #Glasgow7s
Spain's Carlos Blanco: "We always knew it was going to be difficult, we had quite a few young guys who hadn't really had much experience here for this tournament and to tell the truth our focus is on next weekend in London. A few guys had knocks and niggles so aren't playing today but we will be ready for London."
Samoa back in the match now with their second try giving them a 12-10 lead against Australia through Patrick Faapale who has impressed on day two for the Islanders.
Australia are 10-0 up on Samoa currently in the first Bowl semi final with Jordan Tuapou scoring their second, but Mikaele Pesamino hits back to give the Pacific Islanders a hope in this match.
And Albaladejo completes a hat-trick for France in their win against Spain. 41-0.
Lewis Stirling will be pleased to see Albaladejo take his tally in this match to 12 with his second try in the match as France lead Spain 17-0 at half time.

Gordon Tietjens, after winning 11th World Series title: "It means a lot, we set two targets at the beginning of the season, to win the World Series, and the World Cup. We've had a lot of new players and I am pleased for them. To win with one round to go too is extra pleasing. A lot of credit goes to the team, they've committed a lot and it's an awesome feeling. We had nine new players in Hong Kong and we are building a depth which is now required on this World Series. But we now want to win here, we won it last year and we want to win it back."

So the Cup semi-finals are now complete with South Africa facing England and Wales tackling the 2012/13 HSBC Sevens World Series champions New Zealand.
The Plate semi-finals will be USA v Fiji and Canada v Argentina
Lote Raikabula and Tim Mikkelson also touch down and that's the Series title all wrapped up with a 42-10 win. But knowing Gordon Tietjens, he will want the double and a successful defence of their Glasgow Sevens title.
Is there a 7s team that can give the New Zealand team a good run?? #Glasgow7s— Bgal West (@Bgal West) 05/05/2013 14:20
And that's another one through Gillies Kaka but Argentina aren't done just yet and hit back with a try through Franco Sabato, great backward flick pass that created the space on the left for the try-scorer. 28-10 now to the All Blacks Sevens
New Zealand pick up where they left off in the first half with Pita Ahki scoring under the posts for a 21-5 lead
More great passing exchanges by New Zealand and Sherwin Stowers is under the posts to make it 14-7 to the All Blacks Sevens at half-time
Mikkelson strikes back!.. Patient play seems to be the trademark of @nz7s team this year.. 7-5 to NZ.. #Glasgow7s— Nate Veniale (@Nate Veniale) 05/05/2013 14:10

Argentina clearly haven't read that script as Matias Moroni makes the break and then turns Gillies Kaka inside out to score the opening try, 5-0
So now to the last Cup quarter-final. Remember if New Zealand beat Argentina they'll claim their 11th Series title in 14 years.
Doing work is impossible when irb 7s is on #rugby #Glasgow7s— Lewis Cooper (@Lewis Cooper) 05/05/2013 14:02
Rhys Shellard kicks over the defence and is grateful when the ball comes to a stop just over the try-line, allowing him just to drop on it and make it 26-7 to Wales at the final whistle. They now await New Zealand or Argentina in the Cup semi-finals.
And just like that, Wales retake the 14 point lead. Canada have their work cut out for them in the final 4 minutes! #Glasgow7s #GOCanadaGO— RugbyCanada (@RugbyCanada) 05/05/2013 13:57
Conor Trainor keeps Canada in the hunt for a Cup semi-final place with a try but the response from Wales is swift with Lee Williams scampering away to make it 21-7 to his side with just under four minutes to go
England coach Ben Ryan on facing South Africa in the Cup semi-final: "The team is growing. We have to make sure we strike the fatal blow, we have got to keep converting (chances) into points and stay switched on in defence. They (South Africa) will always try something different to unlock us. It's a great team we're playing in the semi-finals and we've just got to stay in the moment."
And that's another Davies on the scoreboard for Wales, this time Gareth. 14-0 to Wales but they won't underestimate Canada after their comeback against Samoa on day one!
So now we're on to Wales v Canada. Wales have lost Owen Williams to injury but James Davies gives them the perfect start with the opening try.
Great strategy by England 7's, shut Fiji down completely, great win! #england7s #Glasgow7s— Karlos (@Karlos) 05/05/2013 13:43
Fiji give away a penalty and Christian Lewis-Pratt makes no mistake with the drop-kick, so it's England who win 15-12 and set up a Cup semi-final against South Africa later.
And we head into sudden death extra time for the first time today. Fiji/England? Who will SA face in the Cup semis....#glasgow7s— Sevens World Series (@Sevens World Series) 05/05/2013 13:39
No mistake this time from Fiji as Joji Baleviani Raqamate has the pace to touch down his second try, conversion is missed so it's 12-12 with just over a minute left on the clock
England breathe again after Samisoni Viriviri drops the ball with the line in sight. He'd done all the hard work, making the break, hacking on the ball and catching it but then he dropped it at the last minute.
But England hit back through John Brake and then Tom Mitchell on the stroke of half-time to lead 12-7
There is no catching Joji Baleviani Raqamate after he finds a gap in the England defence, 7-0 to Fiji

So the semi-finals for the Bowl are:
Samoa v Australia
Kenya v Scoltand
And the Shield will be:
Russia v Portugal
France v Spain
Still time for Michael Maltman to score a fifth try for Scotland to make it 31-5 at the final whistle after Colin Gregor's conversion going in off the post so the hosts will now face Kenya in the Bowl quarter-finals.
A replacement at half-time, Manuel Sainz-Trapaga finally gets Spain on the scoreboard but Lee Jones finishes off a move he began deep in the Spanish half to increase Scotland's lead to 24-5.

The cheerleaders are out on the pitch so that can only mean Scotland are up next ... against Spain. Can Scotland bounce back from the disappointment of failing to secure their future as a core team in the 2013/14 Series yesterday?

Second try of the match for Oscar Ouma and a little dance in celebration gives Kenya a 22-7 win over France
Kenya are down in the right area of the pitch from their respective and that pressure leads to a try for Andrew Amonde, 17-7 to Kenya with a minute to go on the clock
Terry Bouhraoua works his magic again for France and converts his own try to cut the deficit to 12-7
And Willy Ambaka runs around the defence to make it 12-0 at half-time to the crowd favourites.
The Kenyan fans are going mad again here as Oscar Ouma shrugs off a tackle to score the opening try and their side lead 7-0
Malouf adds his second try so the final score here is 36-0 to Australia. Next up is France v Kenya
The smurfs have certainly arrived on mass at Scotstoun and on the pitch Australia have crossed for two more tries through Con Foley and Nicky Malouf to increase their advantage to 31-0 with two minutes to go
Smurfs and Oompa Lumpas seem to be the costumes of choice today!!! #Glasgow7s— Cath Smart (@Cath Smart ) 05/05/2013 12:05

Dramatic finish to this match with Russia going for the winning score, but much to their coach's fury on the sidelines they knock on in the Samoan 22 with time up and Samoa escape with a 17-14 victory. Russia leave the field though to great applause.
Russia have grown in stature as this tournament has gone on #IlyaBabaev getting them back into this game. Samoa 17-14 Russia #Glasgow7s— Maru Ririnui (@Maru Ririnui) 05/05/2013 11:46
As the rain starts to rain here at Scotstoun Stadium the Russians have hit back again through Ilya Babaev in the corner, great conversion kick means it's 17-14 with just over a minute to go. Can they score again and nick the win?
A solo try for Tom Iosefo, who chips the ball over the defence, kicks it on again and touches down unchallenged to increase Samoa's lead to 17-7
