The Digicel Fiji 7s team once again lost the plot against Gordon Tietjens men succumbing to a 7-34 defeat in the final of the Emirates Airline South Africa Sevens at Outeniqua Park in George on Saturday.
New Zealand raced into a 29-0 lead with tries from Lote Raikabula, Victor Vito (2), captain DJ Forbes and James Kamana before Neumi Nanuku scored the Digicel Fiji 7s team's only try of the match.
The title is New Zealand's fourth consecutive in the IRB Sevens World Series after their victories in London, Edinburgh and Dubai and gives them a maximum 40 points from the opening two tournaments, eight more than the Digicel Fiji 7s team.
South Africa, semi-finalists in both Dubai and George, are third with 24 points, four more than Argentina, who followed up their Plate victory in Dubai with a Cup semi-final in George. England and Kenya are next, both with 12 points.
A hat-trick from Zar Lawrence had helped New Zealand beat Argentina 38-14 in the semi-final, the IRB Sevens World Series champions having beaten a committed USA 36-0 in the quarter-final.
The Digicel Fiji 7s team's manner of victory in their semi-final was nowhere near as comfortable scoring tries from Akuila Nawerecagi and Tomasi Mawa in the last two minutes to silence the vociferous home support with a 21-12 victory over South Africa.
The Springbok Sevens paid the price for not converting their attacking opportunities into points and experienced the same disappointment Scotland had endured at their hands in the quarter-finals when Vuyo Zangqa scored in the dying seconds to snatch a 21-17 win.
Neumi Nanuku had earlier scored two of the Digicel Fiji 7s team's tries in their 24-12 defeat of Kenya, the Africans losing in the last eight of the Cup for the second tournament in a row. Argentina meanwhile had to come from behind twice to beat Samoa 22-19 in the other quarter-final.
