LOS ANGELES

Dan Norton scored a record-equalling 244th try as England came from behind to defeat South Africa 19-7 to clinch the Canada Sevens crown on Sunday.

England wing Norton scored late in the second half to cap a superb England victory at Vancouver's BC Place Stadium in the sixth leg of World Rugby's International Sevens Circuit.

Norton's score left him level with Kenya's Collins Injera as the all-time leading tryscorer in world sevens.

"It's been a surreal two days," Norton said.

"It's something I never felt I'd be in a position to do but I owe it to the team-mates who helped me get into try-scoring positions over the years," Norton said of his record.

England's win saw them close the gap on series leaders South Africa, who top the standings with 126 points heading into the seventh leg of the series in Hong Kong next month. England are now second with 103 points.

South Africa's disappointment in defeat was compounded by what looked like a potentially serious hamstring injury to key playmaker Roscko Specman, who pulled up suddenly in the second half before leaving the field.
