Wales went into the Twickenham tournament with a realistic opportunity of claiming a top five spot in the overall series, entering the finale in sixth place, just one point behind Kenya but the inability to make the main draw on day two saw the Africans and England finish the season on 92 points, edging one point in front of Paul John's men, to condemn Wales to seventh overall.
Wales head coach Paul John will look back on the three tournaments in Australia, New Zealand and Japan where poor displays on opening day ensured they failed to reach the main knockout stages on day two, meaning series points were at a premium.
However John will be pleased the way new players have gelled within the squad with Chris Knight and Dafydd Howells just two who have put their names in the ring as Wales prepare to defend their World Cup crown next month in Moscow.
Wales put behind them a disappointing day yesterday in the Marriott London 7s where they could only muster one pool victory, to charge to the Bowl final after brushing aside Samoa 21-12 in the Bowl semi-final this afternoon.
Chris Knight scored two first half tries while Neath teenager Dafydd Howells scored a late second half try to repel the big hitting South Sea Islanders. Alex Walker's deadly right boot kept the scoreboard ticking over and out of reach for Samoa with three well executed conversions.
In the Bowl final France opened the scoring through speedster Baptiste Douillard in the second minute with Thibaut Zambelli adding the conversion.
But Davies powered over a couple of minutes later with Alex Walker adding the conversion. The double act continued in the second half when Davies pounced for two more touchdowns while Walker added the extras to ensure Wales finished their campaign with something to shout about.
