The NZ Rugby sevens team has a commanding 11-points lead over Fiji in the race for the overall IRB series title after beating England 29-14 earlier this morning to win the second to last round in Glasgow.

New Zealand captain DJ Forbes says going into this weekend's final round in London, it's nice to have control of their own destiny.

Forbes scored two tries in this morning's final, taking his career tally to 98.
