It was a remarkable performance.

When Fiji crossed for their second try in the first day, the All Blacks Sevens closed up shop.

In 80 minutes of Sevens Rugby, they did not concede a single point.



A combination of some remarkable kicking and a brilliant blitzkrieg at the ruck, allowed DJ Forbes and his troops to regain the lead in the 2013/2014 Series.

Ben Lam, Gillies Kaka and Sherwin Stowers were imposing strike weapons for the hosts, who will head to Japan as the number one seed in Pool A.



Stowers collected a further two tries in the final along with Tim Mikkelson.



A dazzling Sherwin collected eight tries to be the leading scorer for the tournament.

With 40 points, the back also led the point's scoring charts, alongside Englishmen Tom Mitchell.

Just 12 points were let in by the side after Sir Gordon Tietjens admitted that the rain had caught out his team against Fiji.

Strategic shifts were made, and the All Blacks Sevens were remarkable in wins over Spain, France, Canada, England and eventually South Africa.

New Zealand finished with 185 points scored, and just two tries and one conversion conceded.
