Rugby Sevens: World title in sight for All Black Sevens

The All Black Sevens can clinch the overall world title in Tokyo this weekend.

New Zealand is a massive 25 points ahead of nearest rivals Fiji in the overall standings, with Samoa another four points back.

Captain DJ Forbes says they want to close out the series.

"Pretty blessed to be in this situation but I think we still need to do extremely well here in Tokyo to eliminate any mathematical chance of a country taking it away from us."

The All Blacks Sevens will meet France, Japan and Canada in pool play with their tournament opener against the French shortly after four o'clock.
