New Zealand and Australia are on a collision course at the Amsterdam Sevens.

Both sides went through pool play unbeaten at the final leg of the Women's Sevens World Series in Holland overnight.

They look set to meet in the tournament final tonight, having been drawn on opposite sides of the finals draw.

New Zealand plays Russia in the quarterfinals at 11.06pm, while Australia take on Brazil at 10pm.

Wins should see the teams play England and Canada respectively in semifinals, before an expected meeting in the final.

That would be a winner takes all match, with the victor winning the World Series title.

Last night New Zealand eased through pool play, beating the United States 43-7, Ireland 28-7, and Spain 19-5.

World player of the year finalist Kayla McAlister scored five tries on the day.

What effect will a potential ban on booze at Rugby Sevens 2015 have on you?

I'd no longer go ... what's the point?

I'd buy a ticket, with rugby the priority again.

Ban or no ban, I'm still going.

I'd rather watch 'Wheel of Fortune' on a 24/7 loop than 7s.
