New Zealand Beats England in Final of Rugby World Cup SevensPeter-Joseph Hegarty
Tim Mikkelson scored two of New Zealand’s five tries as the Kiwis beat England 33-0 in the final of the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow.
There were also tries for Tomasi Cama, Waisake Naholo and Gillies Kaka as New Zealand followed up its quarterfinal and semifinal wins over defending champion Wales and Fiji, respectively.
It was the last global championship before the sport makes its Olympic Games debut in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. The International Rugby Board said June 12 that the next edition will take place in five years’ time in order for the tournament to be integrated into the Olympic cycle.
