The All Blacks Sevens side have won their first title in 21 months after defeating Argentina 38-14 in the Cape Town Sevens today.

Senatla came back and scored two tries for the Blitzboks.

In a repeat of last year's Cape Town semi-final - in which the hosts knocked the Kiwis out to secure their final spot against England - the New Zealanders celebrated a win this time around after also beating the defending Cape Town title-holders, England, in a quarter-final clash earlier in the day.

New Zealand pipped England 17-12 in the quarterfinals, coming from 12-5 down early in the second spell as tries to Dylan Collier and a last-minute effort from Joseva Ravouvou earned their side a place in the last four.

NZ moved to the top of the overall standings on 41 points with their victory in Cape Town‚ after finishing as runners-up to the Blitzboks in Dubai last weekend.

New Zealand were not only swept aside 22-0 by the US in their opening pool game, they needed come-from-behind wins over two of their biggest rivals to secure their spot in the title decider.

New Zealand was leading 14-7 at halftime.

Star wing Seabelo Senatla was both villain and hero against Fiji the day after he became the fastest man to 200 tries in Series history‚ achieving the feat in his 35th tournament.

South Africa 12 (12) - Tries: Philip Snyman, Cecil Afrika.

SA - Tries: Philip Snyman‚ Cecil Afrika.

Ravouvou received a yellow card for a unsafe tackle in tackle in the build-up to the try but the home team failed to take advantage of the situation and it was NZ that scored next when Tim Mikkelson charged over and Vilimoni Koroi converted to edge NZ in front. Conversions: Koroi (1), Andrew Knewstubb (1).
