New Zealand pulled off one of the most remarkable last-gaps Sevens victories in recent memory on Sunday, eliminating the Olympic champion Fiji side from the quarter-finals of the Sydney Sevens.

Receiving the ball on their own try-line with time up and trailing by four points, the Kiwis held the ball for six phases and 19 passes before Sione Molia crashed over for the match-winner – a minute and 26 seconds after the final hooter had sounded.

New Zealand were bounced out of the Allianz Stadium-hosted tournament in the semis by England, who subsequently lost the final to South Africa.
