Ahead of this weekend's Tokyo Sevens, the seventh round of the HSBC Sevens World Series, New Zealand sit top of the Series standings on 113 points.

Gordon Tietjens' side are 25 points ahead of last week's champions Fiji in second place, and a further four ahead of Samoa who are third.

Despite having won just one Cup this season, and one less than Fiji, New Zealand are the only side to have successfully reached every Cup quarter final this season, and appeared in four of the six finals.
