Sevens Title Won at Twickenham
New Zealand have retained their Sevens World Series title, ending the season with a third-place spot at the London Sevens to finish on 167 Series points, six ahead of closest rivals Fiji. A record two-day Sevens crowd of 103,027 attended Twickenham, a fitting climax to another thrilling season. Despite losing to Fiji in the semi-final, New Zealand then claimed third-place with a 40-0 triumph over Argentina. “It’s an awesome feeling,” New Zealand’s long-serving coach Gordon Tietjens said.
