The New Zealand 7s side won the Sydney title beating USA 21-5 in the final in Australia.

New Zealand took the firm control of the game from the first half and led 14-nil at the break.

Regan Ware, Sam Dickson and Tone Ng Shiu scored the tries in the final.

All Blacks captain Sione Molia says they came determined in the game and did the job.

Sam Dickson was awarded the player of the final and says it was the team work which gave them their second victory in the World Rugby series.

“It feels great to win this award. Obviously my team mates they deserve the credit and especially those player who were injured this weekend this win is for you all.”

New Zealand earlier defeated Fiji 36-14 in the semi-final.
