Cape Town - New Zealand romped to victory in their home HSBC World Rugby Sevens leg in Hamilton on Sunday.

After proving far too strong for France in the final - winning 27-5 - as per usual, the All Blacks performed their haka.

Not to be outdone, the Black Ferns, New Zealand's women's side, also claimed top honours - beating Canada 24-7 in the showpiece match - and they too performed their version of the haka.

The All Blacks have opened a yawning 15-point gap atop the standings after three of the 10 tournaments this season.

This season is the 21st in the history of World Rugby's Sevens, with New Zealand having been crowned champions a staggering 12 times previously, but not since the 2013/14 season.

Other overall winners have been Fiji (4 times), South Africa (3) and Samoa (once).

The Sevens circuit moves to Sydney in Australia for the fourth stop from February 1-2 where the Blitzboks will look to bounce back from a disappointing 10th-place finish in Hamilton.
