Wales have failed in their bid to reach the Women's Sevens World Series after being knocked out of a 12-team qualifying tournament in Hong Kong.

They were beaten 26-0 by South Africa in the quarter-finals on day two.

Wales began their campaign by beating Poland 19-17 and Argentina 47-5 on Thursday before losing 12-5 to Belgium to finish second in Pool C.

The knock-out games end in a final, with only the tournament winners qualifying for the next World Series.

Wales will now go on to compete at the Commonwealth Games on Australia's Gold Coast, from 13-15 April.
