Stars from the silver-medal winning women's sevens rugby team got a rousing reception when they showed up at a girls under-15 regional rugby tournament in Wellington this afternoon.

The players, and their medals, were swamped by fans wanting photos and a chance to talk shop.

It's part of New Zealand Rugby's Seven Cities in Seven Days tour that the team is making around the country this week.

Sevens captain Sarah Gross and winger Portia Woodman spoke to reporter Kate Pereyra Garcia about what it's like to get such a reception everywhere they go following their Olympic success.
