The All Blacks Sevens won their third tournament this season in style, running in four tries to claim their 11th title in Hong Kong and first since 2011.

Tries from Ben Lam and Tim Mikkelson gave New Zealand a 12-0 lead but England hit back just before the break when Tom Powell burst through.

However, D J Forbes quickly put New Zealand back in command, stretching the lead after taking a huge pass from Sherwin Stowers to score uncontested.

If the manner of their win was impressive, they way they celebrated was also pretty special.
