New Zealand hung on to win a tense final at the HSBC Canada Sevens in front of another bumper crowd at BC Place in Vancouver.
The All Blacks Sevens’ 17-14 victory over rivals Australia means they stretch their lead at the top of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2020 standings to 11 points after six rounds.
The silver medal represents Australia’s best result of the Series so far and their second podium finish following bronze in Hamilton.
The final was a see-saw affair, which included three yellow cards, but ultimately a pair of tries from Joe Ravouvou sealed the victory for New Zealand, who duly performed their famous Haka in celebration after receiving their medals.
