The United States, current leaders of the World Rugby Women's Sevens Series, moved through to tomorrow's quarter-finals at the Dubai event - the second tournament in the Series - with a 100 per cent record.
Seeking a third successive Series win following the season-opener in Glendale last month and last season's triumph in the French city of Biarritz, the United States built on yesterday's opening win over Brazil at The Sevens Stadium in the United Arab Emirates city as they defeated Russia 33-14 and Canada 34-10.
They will next play Russia for a semi-final place against either Fiji or the overall Series and Dubai defending champions New Zealand.
