Auckland lead the way with big wins on Day One of World Hottest Sevens

New Zealand powerhouse Auckland set the tone on Day One of the Worlds Hottest Sevens in Darwin today with 3 big wins, two of those victories coming against big named Australian sides Randwick and Sunnybank.

Auckland who struggled in failing to defend their national title in Queenstown earlier this month came flying out of the blocks early today with a 27.5 win over Randwick and closely followed this up against the form Australian side Sunnybank 33.0.

Auckland will not have it all their own way tomorrow when the action heats up even further in the knock-out stages with reigning champions the Borneo Eagles also ending today unbeaten beating Canberra 28.19 and Iconz 38.10 before finishing the day with a comfortable 42.0 win over Veitacini.

The crowds were denied seeing Fijian side Daveta take to the field due to visa issues in entering the country, meaning that Super 15 side the ACT Brumbies had a more comfortable day than expected but were still unable to top their group following a defeat to the Tsunami Wavewearers who will be on the look out for more scalps come the Quarter-Finals tomorrow.

The Australian Thunderbolts who are the shadow side of the national team that is currently in Wellington preparing for the World Sevens Series did not have it all their own way, winning 2 of their 3 matches with victories coming against Papau New Guinea and the Wisdom King Browns but defeat coming against the Black Stallions.

The Borneo Eagles and Auckland will head into Day Two as favorites for the crown but the Wavewearers, ACT and Thunderbolts will be hot on their heels.
