Australia and England complete Women's Sevens Commonwealth semi-final line-up
Australia's win also confirmed England's place in the last four and world champions New Zealand stand between them and a guaranteed medal in the first Commonwealth Games women's rugby sevens competition.
The New Zealand men's and women's sevens teams have claimed gold at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
South Africa were quickly into their stride in the final match of the opening round, Justin Geduld scoring a try in each half as the BlitzBoks showed their ruthless side with a dominant 43-0 defeat of Malaysia, the nation which hosted the first Commonwealth Games to feature rugby back in 1998.
Both teams set up semi-finals against England, played earlier today, with the women winning 26-5 and the men 17-12, setting up Finals against Olympic champions Australia and Fiji.
The victor of that match will progress through to the semi-finals and the loser will be out of medal contention.
New Zealand then extended their lead to 14-nil after Regan Ware cut his way through the Fiji defence, beating them on the inside to score the All Black Sevens second try.
Woodman, the highest ever women's Sevens try-scorer, was inconsolable following the gold medal match in Rio after she was sin-binned during her side's loss.
Etene Nanai-Seturo opened the scoring for New Zealand after two minutes and Vilimoni Koroi's conversion gave them a 7-0 lead. The match was quickly tied up at 5-5, though, after Miriama Naiobasali went 80 metres and just had enough left to stretch out for the line under the tackle of Emma Sykes. In a thrilling extra stanza, New Zealand secured the victory when Kelly Brazier scored a 80m try.
The second half was barely 30 seconds old when Charlotte Caslick raced away to restore Australia's lead once more but it again didn't last long with Naoibasali scoring her second to tie the scores at 10-10.
