Samoa had to settle for a fourth place finish at the Hertz Wellington Sevens last night, losing the 3rd and 4th playoff to New Zealand, 17-7.

The home team pulled through after a tough battle that could have easily been the finale of the two-day tournament.

Both Samoa and New Zealand lost their semi final games to England and Kenya.

Whereas Samoa narrowly lost 21-19 to England in a game where a yellow card to Alatasi Tupou cost dearly, New Zealand suffered a shock last minute 14-19 loss to Kenya.
