The Australian Women’s Sevens side have taken the Sevens World Series title after ensuring a place in the Final in Paris overnight.
While the side has yet to receive their trophy, it will be the second time in three seasons Australia has won the title after taking it out the 2015-16 World Series.
They can't be beaten on the ladder with the winning side of the Paris leg receiving 20 points with second taking 18.
There is a current gap of four points between Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand who they will meet in the tournament decider.
"It was a hard-fought match there, sorry to everyone at home for putting you on the edge of your couches,” co-captain Shannon Parry said
“It’s 5:30am at home but we did it for all our squad members back home and for everyone that’s been on this journey with us this year," she said.
However, the day and run to the title weren't without a few close calls.
In the quarterfinal match against Fiji, Australia were reduced to six players after co-captain Charlotte Caslick was sent to the sidelines for a high tackle which Fiji capitalised on the score the opening try.
Caslick's return to the pitch saw an instant impact as Australia levels but Fiji were able to take the lead just before halftime.
After the break, it was going point for point but Australia was still two points behind until Emilee Cherry scored out wide to claim a 22-19 victory.

It all came down to the game against France if Australia won they secured the title and Australia took the lead early before extending their lead to 14-0.
However, France fought their way back into the game and pulled out the lead but once against Australia came from behind as Cherry once again scored.
“There was a lot of pressure coming into that match, we just go through in a nail-biter against Fiji and then to win it with the last play was a fantastic effort from the girls," Parry said.
“I guess it’s a short-lived celebration for us tonight because we want to take away that title tomorrow,” she said.
