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.
