The public's view

Hamilton Boys' High School have taken out the Sanix World Rugby Youth Invitational Tournament in Japan for a record third time after a dramatic last-gasp win in the decider.

Up against South Africa's Paarl Boys' High School in the final on Monday, HBHS were down 10-11 with two minutes to play, before birthday boy Viliami Tuipulotu scored in the corner.

Paarl had time for the kickoff, but having regathered the ball, they knocked on, for the final whistle to be blown.

In the first half, Sevu Reece scored a try, kicked the conversion and then slotted a penalty.

It was Hamilton's fourth appearance at the tournament, which began in 2000, and the win goes with their 2010 and 2011 titles.

The New Zealand champions have now won 24 games in a row.

HBHS took a squad of 28 to Japan and played six games in eight days.

The tournament comprised eight Japanese teams and eight from overseas; one each from New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, Canada, England, France, South Korea and Uruguay.
