England went unbeaten on day two of the Hong Kong leg of the IRB World Sevens Series.

Wins over Portugal and Canada have teed up a quarter-final clash against South Africa for Simon Amor's team. Following their day one 19-12 win over Argentina, on Saturday they kicked-off in a similar vein with a 21-7 win over Portugal with Dan Norton crossing alongside a double from Dan Bibby. And they finished the day with a hard fought 14-12 win over Canada with Norton grabbing a brace.

England were one of four teams to go unbeaten in the pool stages of the competition with Australia, Fiji and New Zealand all winning three from three.

Wales will face New Zealand in the quarter-final of the cup while Australia tackle Canada and Fiji, who won this leg of the competition last year, are up against the USA.
