Hayne ankle tap in Fiji flogging

by Staff Writer

Jarryd Hayne had a mixed two-minute cameo for Fiji as the side cruised into the London Cup Semi-finals.

Injected into the game for the final two minutes, Hayne made a try-saving ankle tap against France - the highlight of his so far brief Sevens foray.

He followed that up with a knock on, though that mattered little as Fiji flew into the semis with s 40-7 win over France.

It wasn't such great news for another former NRL star, with Sonny Bill Williams injured in New Zealand's quarter-final loss.

Williams was injured in the first minute of the match, with New Zealand ultimatley relegated to the plate competition in the defeat.

Earlier in the afternoon, Australia scraped through to the Bowl semi-finals, with a 17-12 win over Portugal, after an early scare.

Australia took a 7-5 lead into the break and was up 17-5 with a one-man advantage heading into the final minute, before a crucial penalty handed Portugal a chance to narrow the margin.

The Aussies will meet Samoa in the bowl smie-final at 10:42pm AEST, while Fiji takes on South Africa in the Cup semis at 11:04pm.
