One new cap for Tietjens

2:17 pm on 17 March 2012

The New Zealand sevens rugby coach Gordon Tietjens has named one new cap in his side for the Hong Kong and Japan legs of the World Series.

The 19-year-old Auckland player Lolagi Visinia will make his national sevens debut and Waikato's Joe Webber has also been called into the squad as injury cover for the injured Toby Arnold.

Joining Arnold on the sidelines with his knee injury are the rising star Frank Halai, who's got a problematic hamstring, and Scott Curry and Solomon King, who are both out with shoulder injuries.
