Home Turf Win

NZ cruised to the top of the International Rugby Sevens table with a resounding 33-15 win over Fiji in the Wellington series final. Matua Parkinson, who had assumed the captaincy due to the unavailability of both Karl Te Nana and Eric Rush, went for a simple and effective game plan: “We just had to get hold of the ball and keep hold of it.” NZ ran in 5 tries to Fiji’s 3, with Brad Fleming scoring the winning two in the final minutes of the match.
