England lose out in Hong Kong Sevens final
Monday 31 March 2014
New Zealand beat England 26-7 to win the Hong Kong Sevens and reclaim top spot in the overall standings in the IRB Sevens World Series yesterday.
The All Blacks Sevens won their third tournament this season in style, running in four tries to claim their 11th title in Hong Kong and first since 2011.
Tries from Ben Lam and Tim Mikkelson gave New Zealand a 12-0 lead but England hit back just before the break when Tom Powell burst through. However, D J Forbes quickly put New Zealand back in command, stretching the lead after taking a huge pass from Sherwin Stowers to score uncontested.
