The All Blacks smashed the French and the rowers picked up three golds, but there was more egg-cellent news for Kiwi sport over the weekend.
Riki Paewai and Nick Hornstein scrambled the opposition to claim the World Egg Throwing Title on Sunday (UK time) at the 13th World Egg Throwing Championships at the Swaton Vintage Day, in the English village of Swaton, near Peterborough.
Throwing eggs may seem an easy task, but the competition requires competitors to also catch them cleanly without it cracking.
While the pair have been confirmed World Champions - the exact length of the throw is still unknown.
The previous world record was set at this year's New Zealand rural games in Palmerston North in March by baseball players Mr Paewai and Kris Richards, who won with a throw and catch of 85.96 metres.
In a bonus round, Mr Paewai and Mr Richards, the 2018 NZ Champions then paired up again, smashing their own world record with a whopping 93.6 metre throw and catch.
Egg tossers from Australia, Spain, Germany, Japan, Belgium and Ireland also took part in the event hosted by the World Egg Throwing Federation.
