The New Zealand rugby sevens side has capped off another IRB World Series title with an emphatic 52-33 win over Australia in the final of the London leg.

The All Blacks Sevens actually trailed 21-0, but 22 points from Gillies Kaka helped them take control of the game and the title.

They'd already secured their 12th series title by making the quarter-finals.

The New Zealanders beat Fiji 12-10 in the semi-finals and South Africa 32-5 in the quarter-finals.

Sir Gordon Tietjens' men finish 28 points ahead of South Africa in the overall standings.
