Spain has beaten the All Blacks Sevens 26-24 in their second pool match at the world series tournament in Vancouver.

In their first-ever rugby sevens victory over New Zealand, Spain led 14-12 at halftime after the All Blacks Sevens took an early 12-0 lead through tries to Joe Ravouvou and Andrew Knewstubb.

The Spanish extended their lead to 21-12 soon after the break, the New Zealanders hitting back through a second Ravouvou try and Sam Dickson’s 14th minute effort. The lead was short-lived, Pol Pla dotting right on fulltime for the winning try.

Earlier, New Zealand beat France 45-7 in their first pool game.

The All Blacks Sevens’ third pool match is against Australia later on Sunday.
