Four-time champions New Zealand moved into the semifinals of the Commonwealth Games Sevens, after seeing off Kenya 19-7 at Ibrox Stadium on Sunday.

However, the all-conquering All Blacks - who will play Australia - paid a dear price for a last-gasp 21-19 victory over Wales.

Pita Ahki sustained a hamstring injury.

"He is probably ruled out now. He has done his hamstring so he will be out for the rest of the tournament," said Kiwi playmaker Sherwin Stowers.

"It leaves us one man short and means that everyone else needs to step up and do their role."

Australia did well to pull back from an awful start against Wales.

"Three tries down was the worst possible start," said Wallaby man-mountain Pama Fou.

"The score before half-time was very crucial. We always knew we had it in us, we believe in one another. It feels awesome to score the winner.

"We trained our arses off for the last six weeks for this moment. We can go all the way for sure. It's just about belief."
