“To be crowned World Champions is a huge credit to the players and management who have trained so hard to win this pinnacle event.
“I want to especially acknowledge Tim Mikkelson and Kayla McAlister who are the IRB Sevens Players of the Year and Gillies Kaka and Portia Woodman who are the Players of the Tournament. All had superb seasons and World Cups.
“It is also worth reflecting that New Zealand is now World Champions in fifteens and sevens for both men and women. Our sevens teams are also World Series champions. This really is an extraordinary moment in time for New Zealand rugby.”
