Cape Town - The Blitzboks have been beaten 21-19 by the USA in a quarter-final at the Dubai Sevens ending their hopes of defending their tournament crown. 

The USA opened the scoring with a converted try through Perry Baker after they had worked an overlap out to the right.

Philip Snyman added a further unconverted try before half-time for the Blitzboks to lead by 12-7 at the break.
