AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - New Zealand retained the women's sevens world series title after beating arch-rivals Australia 29-12 in the final of the fifth and final tournament at Amsterdam.

The teams had shared two tournament wins between them and the exciting final victory was set up by tries to Carla Hohepa either side of halftime.

Australia scored first through Emilee Cherry and still led 5-0 after seven minutes before Shiray Tane, Kayla McAlister and Hohepa pushed New Zealand 17-5 clear at halftime.

Hohepa widened the gap soon after the break before Ellia Green responded for Australia to leave them 22-12 going into the final five minutes.

McAlister's second try near the end sealed the result and made it two-from-two for New Zealand.
