New Zealand beat England 26-7 in Sunday's final of the Hong Kong Sevens as they ran in four tries in an impressive win.

The victory, inspired by captain DJ Forbes, came at the end of a three-day festival which is one of the highlights of the social scene in Hong Kong - and the All Blacks celebrated by baring their chests and performing the Haka in a downpour.

"We were given a lesson by England last week but here we are on the podium," said Forbes. "It feels good to win in Hong Kong again."

New Zealand pounced on seven first-half errors by England to open a decisive 12-7 half-time lead before Forbes and Sam Dickson underlined the their side's dominance with further tries in the second half.

The win saw the All Blacks move back to the top of the HSBC Sevens World Series with two rounds of the nine remaining.

The Scottish Sevens are up next, on 3-4 May.
