New Zealand decimate Spain to keep perfect record at Singapore Sevens

New Zealand have kept their hot form alive against Spain in their second match at the Singapore Sevens, taking a 53-0 victory.

Coming into the match after a 43-0 opening win over Japan, the All Blacks Sevens were looking for revenge against Spain, having lost to the European minnows in Canada last month.

It would take just two minutes for the All Blacks Sevens to open the scoring, with Sam Dickson finished off a brilliant team move, started by the brilliance of Jona Nareki.

Captain Scott Curry doubled New Zealand's lead from the restart, Nareki again turning provider to see the All Blacks Sevens take a 10-0 lead.

Akuila Rokolisoa wouldn't need any help from his teammates with New Zealand's next try, dancing through the Spanish defence before a smart kick through saw him pounce to score under the posts. Nareki's hard work in the first half was rewarded with a try before halftime, a break away run from Kurt Baker putting him away out wide.

Baker's successful conversion giving the All Blacks Sevens a 24-0 halftime lead. Baker would then get proceedings underway in the second half, darting up the middle from the restart for the first points of the second half.

More tries to Regan Ware and a second for Rokolisoa saw New Zealand match the 43 points from the opening win over Japan, before Joe Webber ran 80 metres to score the All Blacks Sevens' eighth try of the match.

Joe Ravouvou's final try would see New Zealand pass 50 points, scoring after the siren to seal the emphatic win.

New Zealand play their final pool match against Samoa later tonight.
