Paris Sevens: South African 'Blitzboks' seal overall title

It meant England was unable to overhaul the Blitzboks ahead over the final round of the series in London next weekend.
Sevens all-time leading try scorer Dan Norton crossed three times for England, but it could not overhaul a 19-5 lead for its arch-rival, topped by a fine try for Marky Robertson.
Defending champion Fiji, which came into the penultimate round 25 points adrift in the standings, earlier Sunday saw its chance ended by a quarterfinal defeat to an inspired Scotland.
South African had taken a firm grip on the title by reaching eight of the last nine finals with coach Neil Powell hailing their performances.
