And add to that New Zealand are double Commonwealth Games rugby sevens champions after the men's team beat Fiji 14-0 in the gold medal match, following the women's triumph over Australia in their final. The women's gold medal match was an absolute thriller. With the game tied 12-12 at full-time, it was sent to golden point extra time. Kelly Brazier scored a breakaway try running more than 80 metres to win gold and and get one back over Olympic champions Australia, who forced the Black Fern sevens to settle for silver in Rio. Kelly Brazier spoke to Joe Porter about what it means to be the inaugural Commonwealth Games women's sevens champions.
