NZ win RWC Sevens title in Moscow
The New Zealand men's and women's sevens teams completed a stunning double by winning their World Cup finals in Moscow on 30 June.
The women set the tone with a comprehensive 29-12 win over Canada in their final.
The All Blacks Sevens immediately took up the challenge to beat England 33-0 in their final.
Both finals were played in soaking conditions as thunderstorms blitzed the Russian capital.
The men were earlier taken from the field during their semi-final win over Fiji for safety reasons with thunder and lightning circling the ground. Play was suspended for an hour.
Both the men and women returned to play super wet-weather rugby and claim the titles, sending powerful messages as the sport gets set to make its Olympics debut in 2016.
