New Zealand have been handed a tough first day assignment at their home NZ Sevens, to be played at Wellington's Westpac Stadium on the 6th and 7th of February. The pools and match schedules have been announced, confirming that the Kiwis will play against Australia as well as Wales and relatively new Niue on the first day of the tournament, which is the third in the IRB Sevens World Series.
Bush Radio’s Cindy Witten said that however after having won the first two Cup titles of the new season in Dubai and George, and face arguably the toughest pool challenge of all the top sides, South Africa are the tournament's number one seeds. The Boks will still play Series regulars Kenya and Scotland as well as Tonga, who reached the Cup semi finals at the same stadium last year.
