ABs Sevens finish up fifth in Las Vegas
The All Black Sevens team has wrapped up their Las Vegas Sevens campaign with a win.
The team claimed fifth place with a victory over Australia, one of the few positives for a team that’s struggling to get wins over the top teams.
The All Blacks gave it everything against the old arch-enemy, but Australia battled back all the way to the last minute.
Despite taking out fifth place, the disappointment from the many losses over the weekend was evident.
The upside though was seeing the potential of Ruatoki native Ngarohi McGarvey Black crossing over for two tries in the All Blacks win over England. His bravery wwas also on display against Australia.
But that's where the positives end.
There's still concern hanging over the team knowing that the Commonwealth Games is just four weeks away.
The team take off for Vancouver in the next couple of days for the Canadian leg of the World Series that starts on the 10th of this month.
