Kurt Baker scored after halftime but a sensational try to Ben Roach with just under three minutes remaining made the score 15-14.
The All Blacks Sevens would hit straight back through Regan Ware, who finished off a nice passage of play.
A try in injury time to Sione Molia led to a final score that flattered the All Blacks Sevens.
