All Blacks Sevens claim record-equalling sixth Dubai Sevens title

Eden Agero of Kenya holds the ball during their Sevens World Rugby Dubai Series match against Scotland in Dubai

"Three out of three, good start to the tournament, good start to the season but park it and on to tomorrow".

Tone Ng Shiu gave the New Zealand men a 7-0 lead with a first-half converted try.

The All Blacks Sevens were reduced to six at the start of the new half when Luke Masirewa was sin-binned for a high tackle, and a Martin Iosefo break drew the Kiwis to free Stephen Tomasin to score untouched for the USA.

"In saying that it was a really good lesson for us to build as a team, form a few new combinations with some of the regular players out with injuries, and to see where we need to get better".

We knew that we were coming into this final against a good U.S. team. "Even the boys back home who couldn't be here, I know they were cheering us on".

It is unclear whether he will be fit for next weekend's Cape Town Sevens at the Cape Town Stadium.

Earlier, New Zealand had to dig deep to hold out England 7-5 in a low-scoring defence-dominated semifinal. Fiji placed fifth, beating defending Series champion South Africa 24-19 in extra time.

Canada finished ninth overall on the circuit last season. Phil Burgess wrapped up the win after intercepting a Rosko Specman pass, before South Africa scored a consolation try through Selvyn Davids.

They meet France at 11:44am before wrapping up their Pool "B" outing against former Series champions Fiji at 6:06pm.

A top-four finish this season means automatic qualification for the 2020 Olympics.

The Black Ferns were in formidable form, notching 53 unanswered points in their respective quarterfinal and semifinal wins against Russian Federation (31-0) and United States of America (22-0).

Canada trailed 21-0 before Pat Kay scored to cut the French lead to 21-5 at the half. The All Blacks pushed ahead, however, after a lineout to make it 14-5 and then surged ahead with a try in the waning minutes to seal the victory.
