Canberra Super Rugby franchise the Brumbies were named Cup winners and Champions of the World Club Sevens in London after they beat Auckland 17-14 in the final.
Winger Henry Speight said he was delighted to end the ACT Brumbies season with victory at the World Club 7s after an enthralling final with Auckland at Twickenham.
Speight scored twice to inspire the Australian's to a 17-14 victory over their southern hemisphere rivals in the inaugural edition of the tournament.
Brumbies, who had been 12-5 and a man down in their quarter final clash against Moscow, got off to the perfect start as Tom Cox slid over the line early on.
Speight then grabbed his first of the match but Auckland's Kali Hala took the second half by storm scoring twice in two minutes to hand his side the lead.
However with the last kick of the game Speight raced clear of the Auckland defence to secure the title and dedicated the victory to his teammates back in Australia.
"It means a whole lot to win this. It's not only for us but for the whole Brumbies team back in Canberra," he said.
" We've been though the whole season together and it's great to end on a good note and take some silverware home.
"We went into that game just thinking of playing for each other and playing for the jersey.
"Against a tough team like Auckland, to get over them early it's a massive confidence boost.
"I was fortunate to be on the end of some good passing and some good work by the other guys and it's all about taking opportunities.
"The set up has been great and the quality of the sevens has been incredible and we're building something great with this World Club 7s."
Captain Robbie Coleman said the win was a great way to end a successful year of rugby in the Australian Capital.
"Throughout the tournament I think this side has shown we were here to win. I'm very proud of this group for the way they have stuck it out when things got tough," Coleman said.
"Beating Moscow with six men, knocking over the top seeds Buenos Aires and then bouncing back against Auckland all showed plenty of heart.
"Henry Speight is a special player at 15-a-side rugby and he's just shown his versatility here by dominating the sevens. It was nice for us to have some Fijian influence come through in the way we played.
"Great to bring some silverware back to Canberra and finish the season on such high."
Cox scored the first try of the match collecting the ball in his own half before running past two defenders and scoring in the right hand corner.
Despite being held on to by two defenders Speight had enough power to get himself over the line to claim his third try of the day.
However, Auckland began the second half much brighter and Hala, who scored a hat-trick against San Francisco in their quarter-final match, scored with four minutes remaining to give his side hope.
And the New Zealand side were soon in the lead as Hala grabbed the ball from the kick off and went down under the posts.
But there was just enough time left for one last play and Speight stepped up dividing Auckland's defence to sprint over the line and ensure Brumbies clinched the title.
And Auckland captain Orene Ai'i admitted his young side will learn a lot from their first visit to Twickenham.
"It was a good game we knew it was going to be tough," he said.
"The Brumbies are a great outfit and they just came out and put the pressure on us.
"We had to play catch up rugby and when you do against a team like the Brumbies it's going to be a tough day.
"I'm pretty proud of the boys. A lot of young boys here first time 7s experience and to play at Twickenham is an opportunity they will never forget.
"I said to them I'm proud of their efforts and they'll only be better for it and look forward to the next time.
"Kali [Hala] played really well and also young Sinclair [Dominkouich-M] but all the young boys sticked up. They're all going to be great players in the future."
"I think this tournament's only going to grow and it's a tournament to look for in the future."
In the third-place playoff Premiership side Harlequins were seen off by Argentine outfit Buenos Aires 31-7.
Captain Lucas Alcacer stole the show the show with a brilliant offload to Ezequiel Valy to start the scoring before touching down himself.
And after he put the game beyond doubt with his second try Gonzalo Gutuerrez Taboda added another while Henry Cheeseman got a consolation for Quins.
