Aussies unbeaten after first day of Singapore Sevens

AUSTRALIA is in a prime position to break its World Series drought, after going through unbeaten on day one of the Singapore Sevens.

Henry Hutchison's 50th career sevens try saw Australia earn a 19-7 win over Argentina to top Pool C and continue its momentum gained from its third-place finish at last weekend's Hong Kong Sevens.

Australia is looking to snap a seven-year drought by winning its first tournament since 2012.

Charlie Taylor scored the opening try for the Aussies, finishing off a backline movement by diving in just inside the right-hand touchline.

Franco Sabato hit back for Argentina on the stroke of halftime to see them draw level at the main break.

But Australia regained the lead when Simon Kennewell scored, which capped off an impressive day of action where he scored a brace of tries in their opening 19-12 win over Samoa.

Hutchison's length of the field try put the icing on the cake for the Aussies.

Earlier, Australia beat Samoa 19-12 and saw off defending champion Kenya 29-7
