Men's and women's sevens stars hail Kiwi camaraderie after Sydney triumph

The All Blacks and Black Ferns Sevens sides are crediting each other for their continued success, with both teams storming to victory in last weekend's Sydney Sevens.

Having achieved dual victories at both the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, and World Cup in San Francisco, both men's and women's sevens sides again shared the glory in Sydney, each taking out their respective competitions.

Arriving back into Auckland, Sam Dickson and Sarah Hirini spoke about the desire for each side to help inspire the other.

"It's pretty awesome, they seem to be our good luck charm," Dickson began.

"They always play first and they always play first and they always win. When they win, we seem to win as well. 

"It's cool to experience it with those girls. We train at Mount Maunganui together, we see what they go through, a lot of hard work, it's cool."

Hirini echoed Dickson's sentiments, saying:

"We're obviously wanting to do our success and win - and for them to do that as well is pretty special.

"To be able to watch in the crowd as well was really awesome. We'll continue to be their lucky charm if their lucky charm if we're both going to be winners at the end of the day."

"For us to celebrate like that together, it's awesome."
