Australia were one of four sides to win all three of their pool matches and secure their place in the quarter finals on day two of the 2014 Hong Kong Sevens.

Michael O'Connor, coaching in his final Hong Kong Sevens, saw his side beat South Africa 10-7, with tries from Ed Jenkins and Greg Jeloudev as they set up a quarter-final date with Canada.

Defending champions Fiji produced another emphatic performance to beat Kenya 43-5 and top Pool B.

Earlier in the day, Vatemo Ravouvou scored 21 points in their 56-0 defeat of Sri Lanka, and will face USA who snuck through on points difference ahead of Samoa and Scotland as Pool D runners-up.

England's Dan Bibby added 14 points in their victory over Portugal in Pool C before Dan Norton scored a brace in the group decider against Canada, a match they won 14-7.

England will now face Neil Powell's Series leading South Africa in the quarter-finals in So Kon Po on Sunday.

New Zealand beat Samoa 26-7 and USA 17-7 on day two to ensure their progress with a 100% record and they will meet Wales after Sam Cross scored at the death to give Wales victory over Kenya, before they beat Sri Lanka.

It will be a first quarter-final since the second round in Dubai for Wales but the crowds' biggest cheer of the day came as Mithun Hapugodage scored both of Sri Lanka's tries in their 47-12 reverse.

In the Bowl Argentina will play Spain, France await Portugal, Sri Lanka meet Samoa as they still look for a first win as the non-core side competing in Hong Kong and Scotland face Kenya.
