Cama, who replaced the injured Joe Webber from the squad that won the Glasgow leg last weekend, is a member of an All Blacks Sevens side that need only to qualify out of Pool A in London, the final leg of this season's series, to secure a 12th overall title, and they have started the tournament in customarily dominant fashion.

Gordon Tietjens’s team saw off Argentina 40-10 and Cama became only the second man, after England’s Ben Gollings, to pas 2,000 points at this level when he converted Akira Ioane's second-half try in a routine victory.

Elsewhere in Pool A hosts England, who are looking to win the London leg for the first time since 1999, had to come from behind to see off Wales 14-10 with Tom Mitchell’s try the difference in the end.

In Pool B, Samoa have claimed two victories from two, having kicked off proceedings by beating the in-form Canada -- the losing finalists in Glasgow -- 19-12 and they followed that up with a win over Kenya by the same scoreline.

Fiji and Australia are on a collision course at the top of Pool C after they both claimed back-to-back wins, the highlight being Fijian flyer Samisoni Viriviri scoring his 50th tournament try of the season in the Pacific Islanders' win over Spain.

Two defeats from two for Spain means that they will be relegated from next season’s World Series regardless of the result in their final Pool game against Japan.

South Africa, who must win the London leg to have any hope of surpassing the All Blacks at the top of the overall standings, are well-placed after opening up with a 43-7 mauling of Portugal in Pool D.

Scotland kicked off their Pool D campaign with a 14-10 defeat by France but bounced back to beat Portugal 31-5.
