The sevens itself this year was as fun and as good as every other year.There was really tense rugby and it was just fun, I also got on the big screen twice! Friday was a good day with the first pool matches with me and paul watching in my box.
Saturday is always a great day for me I spent the whole day in Tristan's box watching rugby for the whole day. I also got Gareth's Edwards signature. I had never heard of Gareth Edwards but Tristan and his dad said he was the best rugby player ever. I had loads of fun with Tristan that day but I went back to my box for the couple last games.
Sunday's games are always the best. because on Sunday all the games are really close and it is the finals. The Shield was a good set of games and Hong Kong were in the Shield! The first Shield quatar final was Zimbabwe VS Thailand which Zimbabwe won knocking Thailand out of the tournament and putting them into the Shield semi final. The next Shield quatar final was China VS Russia which Russia won knocking China out and putting Russia in the Shield semi final against Zimbabwe. It was the next quatar final and everyone was cheering for the same team HONG KONG! With loads of support Hong Kong beat Korea making a place for them in the Shield semi final. It was now Chinese taipei VS Italy, Italy won putting them in the semi final against Hong Kong. The first Semi final was Zimbabwe VS Russia which Russia won a very close 17-14 so we said bye to Zimbabwe and Russia was in the Shield final. The next semi final was a big game Hong Kong VS Italy, Hong Kong won a very happy victory against Italy 21-14! It was the Shield final Hong Kong VS Russia, and everyone was cheering for Hong Kong it was a really tight game and in the end Hong Kong won the Shield 17 to Russia 19 to Hong Kong! Everyone went absolutely wild as they lifted the 2010 Hong Kong sevens Shield.
The bowl was good with the first quatar final being Argentina VS Wales, which Wales won and got into the bowl semi final. The next bowl match was Scotland VS Japan I really wanted scotland to win because I'm from there and they did! I will skip all the quatar finals and go to the semi finals of the bowl now. The first semi final was Wales Scotland, it was a very depressing lose with the score 26-7 so Wales were in the final. The next bowl semi final was Canada portugal which Canada won. It was now the bowl final with Canada winning in a very one sided game.
It was now the cup and Plate the best game out of that was England VS Australia. I wanted England to win because I'm also from England and they did in one of the most closest games in the tournament. In the Plate semi finals it was USA Australia which Australia won 21-12. The next semi final was South Africa Kenya which South Africa won 19-12. The plate final was a good game with Australia winning the plate. The first cup semi final was Samoa England with Samoa winning and going into the final. The next game was Fiji VS New Zealand everyone was expecting Fiji to win but New Zealand made an upset with them winning. The cup final the best game in the tournament was won by Samoa with them winning the cup! That was the 2010 Hong Kong sevens.
