NZ Crowned Sevens World Champions

New Zealand were crowned HSBC Sevens World Series champions at Murrayfield, despite watching on as South Africa scored a dramatic victory against Australia to win the Emirates Airline Edinburgh Sevens.

Bernardo Botha scored a fine try in the dying seconds to snatch victory 36-35 and make it two Cup titles in a row for injury-hit South Africa, after the Australians had knocked New Zealand out in the semi finals.

In finishing the season with back-to-back wins the South Africans ended the HSBC Sevens World Series in second place behind champions New Zealand and ahead of England in third.

Fiji defeated Samoa 26-14 in the Edinburgh Plate final to beat them fourth in the World Series. In the Bowl competition Kenya broke Scottish hearts with victory after the hooter and Canada beat Russia to win the Shield.
