The New Zealand rugby sevens team has cruised into the quarter-finals of the Wellington round of the IRB series after 3 convincing wins in pool play.

After wins over Scotland and Papua New Guinea the New Zealanders beat Argentina 34-7 in the last match of day one with Frank Halai scoring a hat-trick.

They'll now play Wales in the quarter-finals, while England play Argentina, Australia play South Africa and in a repeat of last year's final Fiji play Samoa.
