Magnificent All Blacks Sevens take Glasgow
James Mortimer 04 May 2014 IRB
It was the North Americans first Cup decider, but they were outclassed against a firing All Blacks Sevens team, with Ben Lam and Scott Curry both scoring a double in the closing match of the Glasgow Sevens.
- Cup final: All Blacks Sevens 54 Canada 7
- Third place: Fiji 17 Scotland 10
- Plate final: England 26 Kenya 5
- Bowl final: Argentina 14 France 20
- Shield final: Japan 12 Wales 29
Captain DJ Forbes was outstanding in the final and it was an utterly relentless performance against a gallant Canadian side.
New Zealand will surely win the World Series title next week, they lead by 19 points from South Africa overall.
"It was pretty special and the team has a lot of character," he said after the match.
"The rain falls into our hands a little bit. We still have a job to do in London but you'd think we can do it."
The win leaves New Zealand 19 points ahead of second-place South Africa in the Series standings, and on course to win a 12th title in 15 years.
