WELLINGTON - New Zealand continued to dominate the world rugby sevens circuit with a late try by rising star Victor Vito securing a 22-17 win over Samoa in the final of the third leg here on Saturday.
The 20-year-old Vito, who is fast drawing comparisons with Jonah Lomu in his prime because of his size, speed and skill, scored six tries in the tournament but none so important as his match winner, his second touchdown in the final.
Samoa had led 17-12 midway through the second half before a Stephen Yates try levelled the score. And just when it looked as though the match would go into extra time, the imposing Vito burst through two defenders for the winner.
The win kept the defending world champions unbeaten in the 2007-08 series after winning the first two rounds in Dubai and South Africa, and put them well on the road towards an eighth world crown in the nine-year-old competition.
New Zealand were impressive in the knockout phases as they beat Wales 40-5 in the quarterfinals and then eliminated Australia 32-7.
Samoa, who won the Wellington round last year, proved the giant-killers of the quarterfinals with an upset 19-17 win over the highly fancied Fijians and they then beat Tonga 24-21 in a bruising semifinal. Tonga had earlier pulled off a surprise 14-10 win over South Africa.
In the battle for the minor honours, South Africa recovered from their loss to Tonga to collect a consolation prize by beating Wales 19-12 in the plate final.
England, who had a torrid time in pool play losing all three games, salvaged some pride by beating Argentina 12-7 in the bowl final, while the Shield competition final, for the pool-play stragglers, saw the United States reverse a 0-17 half-time deficit to beat Kenya 19-17.
The series heads to San Diego for the fourth leg next weekend followed by Hong Kong (Mar 28-30), Adelaide, Australia (April 5-6), London (May 24-25) and Edinburgh (May 31-June 1). - Sapa-AFP
