Fiji win London title, NZ overall champs
New Zealand were crowned sevens rugby world series champion for the 10th time in 13 years but their closest rivals Fiji imperiously won the London Sevens at Twickenham on Sunday.
When New Zealand won their quarterfinal 36-0 over defending London champions South Africa, the Kiwis clinched the series title with an unassailable points lead in the ninth and last tournament.
Fiji then blew away the Kiwis in the semifinals 31-7 for the second year in a row, and mastered Samoa 38-15 in the final for their first London title since 2006.
New Zealand, who won three tournaments along with Fiji this season, ended up edging their Pacific neighbours by six points in the final standings. England were third and Samoa fourth.
