Counties Manukau Men went back to back to claim the Bayleys National Sevens in a nail biting final against Waikato. At half time the two sides were tied seven all. Following the break Counties Manukau secured the only try of the second half. Despite persistent attack from the Waikato side, Counties Manukau held on to win 14-7.

Earlier in the Women's Cup Final, Manawatu had hoped to defend their title but a determined Counties Manukau side were outstanding. Counties Manukau held an astonishing 19-0 lead at half time. However the defending champions showed tenacity and were relentless on attack. Ill discipline from Counties Manukau allowed Manawatu to capitalise but it was a little too late with Counties Manukau claiming the 2017 title with a 24-17 win.

Bay of Plenty's Kelly Brazier was named the Women's Player of the Tournament and Andrew Knewstubb from Tasman was named the Men's Player of the Tournament.
