The All Blacks Sevens have cruised through day one unbeaten in the World Series leg in Sydney. 

They put on a clinic during their last game of the day, thrashing Scotland 42-0.

Andrew Knewstubb scored two early tries to put the Kiwis in a good position early. 

Reagan Ware, and Jona Nareki scored one try each while Scott Gregory bagged himself a brace of tries. 

Earlier they blitzed Spain 41-0 to remain unbeaten in pool play on day one of competition in Sydney.

The Kiwis were far too strong for the Spanish, running in seven tries to none to move to the top of Pool C.

In their first game the New Zealanders kicked off their day with a 27-14 win over Wales.

Joe Ravouvou opened the scoring for the NZ side, before Wales struck back immediately through Owen Jenkins.

Tone Ng Shiu collected a perfect pass from Kurt Baker to edge NZ ahead 10-7 at the halftime break.

Wales came out of the interval with purpose, and a try to Ben Roach saw them draw to within one point of the Kiwis.

But it was Vilimoni Koroi who stood up to spark the match-clinching move for NZ, setting Regan Ware away with a superb offload to seal the win.

Ware got involved again late to set up a try for Sione Molia.
