Watch: 'She's a runaway train!' Rebekah Tufuga proves to be handful for Japanese sevens defenders




The New Zealand women's sevens team have got off to flying start in Japan, defeating the hosts 31-0 in their opening match of the tournament in Kitakyushu today.

The Kiwi team ran in three tries in the first half going into the break 19-0 over Japan.

Rebekah Tufuga came up with an excellent run in the second spell deep inside her own 22 and set up her New Zealand teammate Cheyelle Robins-Reti for their side's fourth try.

New Zealand have won two of the three sevens tournaments this year to lead the series.
