New Zealanders Christchurch ended the Border challenge at the Millennium Sevens, with a comfortable victory over Hawick. Christchurch opened the scoring with a try from Darryl Cochrane, converted by Jed Fraser. The New Zealanders then extended their lead with a try from Spida Hunter, which Fraser again converted.
A try late in the first half for Morris Dillon kept Hawick in the tie, but Christchurch confirmed their semi-final place with two quick second half tries.
Cochrane raced over to be quickly followed by Fraser, who converted the latter. A further try from Hemi Taukiri, confirmed the New Zealanders growing threat in the competition.
