THE Atlantis US Sevens Rugby Club was beaten by local side Striders in the ladies competition at the ANZ National Stadium yesterday.

The visiting Atlantis US team went down 24-17 but coach Emil Signes said the girls did what they could.

"I thought we showed what we can do, and we just got to build up the positives for tomorrow (today). There were positives and there were negatives from their game but we are going to identify the positives and work on them.

"We thought the Striders were wonderful and we thought that we could have won the game but they came back and they did a great job.

"And as for tomorrow (today) I think we will look at the video and try to see what we did well and what we could do better and try to move our game forward from there so I'm expecting the girls will be better than they were today."

Results:

The Atlantis US Sevens Rugby Club 17- 24 Striders; New Caledonia 0- 14 Marist Seahawks - 0-14
