Kenya Defeats Australia 21-14 at Gold Coast Sevens
Hosts Australia lost to Kenya 21-14 after Kenya scored a try in the last second of normal time sending the Australia crashing out of the Gold Coast Sevens quarter-finals on Sunday.
The African nation will now take on powerhouse New Zealand in the semi-finals after the All Blacks overcame stubborn resistance from Argentina to win 12-7. Kenya  entered the tournament with more sevens experience than the young Australian squad and showed the expertise added by new coach Mike Friday, the former England sevens coach who guided that country to a string of Hong Kong Sevens crowns.
The New Zealanders came back from a 7-5 half-time deficit to claim the win, with captain DJ Forbes' second-half try the difference in a tight contest.
Fiji kept alive their hopes of defending their Gold Coast title when they beat Samoa 19-7.
Fuji will now face the impressive South Africans, who were never troubled in their 26-14 win over France.
