The top five teams in the Series standings – USA, New Zealand, Fiji, South Africa and England – all claimed victories in their first group phase games on the opening day in front of another huge crowd at the Hong Kong Stadium, which also witnessed the first two pool matches in the Men’s World Rugby Sevens Series Qualifier 2019.

With just eight pool matches played in the Cathay Pacific/HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series event on day one, it was England’s Dan Norton who grabbed the headlines as he surpassed Kenya’s Collins Injera to become the new all-time leading Hong Kong sevens try-scorer with 32 tries.
