NZ to play SA again in IRB quarter-finals

5:47 am on 16 February 2009

The New Zealand rugby sevens team will again have to overcome South Africa in a quarter-final if they're to succeed in the San Diego round of the IRB sevens series.

The New Zealanders were upset 24-7 by Kenya in their last pool match yesterday... the Africans scoring their first win over the Kiwis in 14 attempts.

Just like last week in Wellington New Zealand will face the series leading South Africans in the quarter-finals (8am NZ time), Fiji play England, Samoa play Argentina and Kenya play the United States.
