The All Blacks Sevens coach Gordon Tietjens has called in a replacement player for the injured Sherwin Stowers for the South African leg of the IRB World Sevens Series, which kicks off on Saturday.

Stowers is being replaced by a new cap, the 18-year-old Waikato player Luke Masirewa, who will only arrive in Port Elizabeth on the opening day.

Stowers injured his hamstring during last weekend's Dubai tournament.
