Cape Town - New Zealand celebrated their victory at the Sydney Sevens stop on Sunday in customary fashion - with a haka.

The All Blacks were in imperious form at the Spotless Stadium, going unbeaten over the two days of competition, beating their nearest challengers in the standings - the USA and Fiji - in the final and semi-finals, respectively.

After their 21-5 victory in the final, the All Blacks jumped to the top of the standings, ahead of the USA on tournaments won, and four points ahead of Fiji.

The win was New Zealand's second of the four tournaments played thus far in the 2018/19 World Rugby Sevens Series following their success in Dubai in December.

Post-final, the All Blacks performed their traditional haka for the handful of spectators who had remained in the stadium.
