7:58 pm on 11 October 2010

The New Zealand rugby sevens team beat Canada 42-7 to record an easy win in their opening game at the Commonwealth Games, despite having two players yellow carded.

The men in black led the Canadians 32-nil at halftime in Delhi, but ended up playing with just 5 on the field for most of the second spell after Tomasi Cama and Liam Messam were sent to the sin-bin.

New Zealand's next game is against Guyana at about 8:20 this evening.
