A Sam Dickson's double boosted the All Blacks Sevens to a 31-0 win over Samoa in their second pool match at the men's world sevens series tournament in Sydney.

Dickson crossed for New Zealand's first try after just two minutes, with Joe Ravouvou adding a second three minutes later.

Ahead 12-0 at half-time, the Kiwis extended their lead via Kurt Baker shortly after the restart.

Dickson added a second three minutes later, then 18-year-old former rugby league age group star Etene Nanai-Seturo crossed for New Zealand's fifth to wrap up the game.

Earlier, Ravouvou and Dickson had bagged try-scoring doubles as New Zealand routed Russia 61-0 in their opening match.
