Despite an opening try to Samisoni Viriviri, the All Blacks Sevens hit back in the first half of the first semi-final with tries to Bryce Heem and captain DJ Forbes.

Another score to Gillies Kaka in the first minute of the second half gave the team a healthy lead, before Viriviri’s second try made for a tight finish.

Earlier in the day New Zealand accounted for Australia in the quarter finals.

The All Blacks Sevens will play either host’s Scotland or Canada in the decider.

Scotland got the crowd excited as they reached their first Cup semi final since 2009 as they beat South Africa 12-7.

They will face Canada in the semi finals, meaning one of these sides will compete in a first-ever Cup final on the World Series, after Geraint John's side proved too strong for Kenya winning with Mike Scholz and Harry Jones scoring the tries in a 14-5 win.
