New Zealand score with the last play of the game, but it matters not! Australia can add the Olympic title to their recent World Series triumph, and they are the undisputed queens of rugby sevens.
The final score: 24-17. A brilliant achievement by these women.
There are some pretty despondent faces in the Kiwi huddle at full-time, but it should be noted that New Zealand have also enjoyed a wonderful tournament and silver is a fantastic achievement.
They bid goodbye to Rio with a tearful haka. There is nothing but joy in the Australian ranks though after a golden tournament and they will return home to a hero’s welcome.
