Brazil reach semi-finals at Middlesex Sevens
11 July 2011
Crowd favourites Brazil narrowly missed out on a place in the Middlesex Rugby Sevens final this weekend, after losing to eventual champions Samurai in the semi-final at Twickenham Stadium.
The South Americans had previously spent a week preparing for the famous sevens tournament at Surrey Sports Park training on the Park’s outdoor pitch facilities.
Tournament winners Samurai, who came into Saturday's showpiece following three tournament wins on the Sevens circuit this season, had conceded just two tries in Saturday's competition prior to the final despatching Plymouth Albion 40-7 and then knocking out Brazil in the semi-final 21-7.
The star-studded Samurai team then proved too strong in the final versus Esher running out 55-12 winners.
