The last play of the final gave New Zealand
a 19-17 win over Australia to take the D ubai
Sevens women’s rugby title.
Two tries from Emma Tonegato — the second
a sensational move that involved virtually every
Australian player on the pitch — and one from
Amy Turner had given Australia a 17-point half-
narrowed the advantage right at the start of
the second half before Tyler Nathan-Wong
put last year’s World Series winners within
Skipper Goss crossed over after the siren to
claim the unlikeliest of wins.
Australia coach Tim Walsh was delighted with
his side’s effort, if not the result.
“There is nothing between us and New Zealand
at the moment... though personally, I thought we
were the best team in Dubai,” he said.
“However, you can never, ever write New
Zealand off no matter what level of rugby it is
and the Cup Final was a fantastic game. ”
Australia’s Alicia Q uirk was announced as the
Dubai Sevens Player of the Tournament for a
series of outstanding displays over the two days
“Alicia is the heart and soul of this team — she
is all about the team and not the individual,”
Walsh said of the 22-year-old from Wagga
“S he has an incredible work ethic who is always
looking to improve her game and is one of the
leaders of the team now — very opinionated
and a very intelligent player. For me she was the
deser ved recipient of this award.”
Australia thrashed Fiji 47-0 in yesterday ’s
quarter-finals before accounting for Canada 29-7
in the semis.
Canada finished third after beating France in
golden point extra-time while England saw off
the challenge of Fiji — once again in golden
point — to pick up the Plate trophy and finish

New Zealand fought hard to
beat Pakistan by 17 runs in the
second Twenty20 international
in Dubai to split their two-
match series 1-1 today.
Set a challenging 145-run
target Pakistan lost wickets at
regular intervals with opener
Ahmed Shehzad (33) and
captain Shahid Afridi (28)

enough to raise any hope of a
Pakistan won the first match
— also played in Dubai — by
seven wickets yesterday.
This time their chase was
chaotic as New Zealand bowled
with precision and fast bowlers
Jimmy Neesham finished with
3-25 and Kyle Mills 3-26.
Left-arm spinner Anton
Devcich (2-16) rattled Pakistan
by dismissing Sarfraz Ahmed in
the very first over for just one.
Ahmed had made 76 not out in
the first match.
Pakistan also lost Mohammad
Hafeez (nine) and Haris Sohail
(three) and were struggling at
3-24 before Shehzad added 40
for the fourth wicket with Saad
Nasim who made 19.
Afridi hit two towering sixes
off spinner Daniel Vettori but
was caught behind off Neesham
with 24 needed in the last two
Mills wrapped up the innings
with the wickets of Umar Gul
(nought) and Sohail Tanvir (11).
“Wehad a review of our
performance of the first
match and that paid off,” said
New Zealand skipper Kane
“We put up a good show and
it ’s nice to level the series.”
Shahid Afridi pointed the
finger of blame at his side’s
“ We lost three early wickets
and then played more dot
balls and that made the target
difficult,” Afridi said.
Earlier, New Zealand were
given a sound start of 49 for
the first wicket by skipper Kane
Williamson (32) and Devcich
(21) but Hafeez (1-20) and
Afridi (2-33) applied the brakes
with three quick wickets.
Williamson hit three
boundaries and a six in his 31-

(31) and Tom Latham (26) to
lift the innings in the final overs

Paceman Gul, playing his first
match since April due to knee
problems, finished with 2-24 in
his four overs.
Besides Gul, Shehzad also
returned to the team, with
Awaiz Zia and Mohammad
Irfan dropping out.
New Zealand made four
changes from the first match,
bringing in Latham, Dean

Two teenage Greymouth
basketballers have won spots in age-
group New Zealand development
basketball teams to tour Australia
Joe Lunn, 16, is included in
the New Zealand development
under-17 team and Chester Mama
in the under-16 development team.
Initially when the teams were
announced, Lunn was named as
a non-travelling reserve but after
other players were unavailable he
was pulled into the team.
Mama had missed out on selection
altogether, however also because
of players making themselves
unavailable he firstly made it as a
non-travelling reserve, and then this
week won a place in the team after
more players pulled out of the side.
Greymouth High School sports
co-ordinator Robbie Barrow said
both boys were working hard on
their basketball and had had some
good coaching from the Nelson
Giants coachforce development
officer Sam Dempster, who visited
Greymouth on a monthly basis.
Both Lunn and Mama are
members of the school’s senior A
basketball side and have represented
West Coast in their respective age
The January tour is a competition-
