New Zealand leaped back to the top of the IRB Sevens World Series rankings as they beat South Africa 21-0 in the cup final in Wellington.

Sherwin Stowers (two) and Tim Mikkelson scored the tries in the final as Gordon Tietjens' side conceded just 12 points en route to their victory.

In the semi-finals they beat defending Wellington Sevens champions England 31-0. Ben Lam, Scott Curry, Stowers, Bryce Heem and Akira Ioane all scored tries in an impressive display.

In the third place play-off Fiji beat England 14-7 with Semi Kunitani scoring his fourth try of the tournament after the buzzer had sounded. Australia came from 10-0 behind to beat Canada 12-10 in the final of the Plate, with returning captain Ed Jenkins scoring the decisive try and Cameron Clark kicking the all-important conversion.

Collins Injera scored twice as Kenya beat Scotland 24-14 to lift the Bowl.
