The New Zealand Sevens squad to defend their Wellington title was announced on Monday, with Waikato's Save Tokula the only debutant name in the 12 man side.

The Wellington tournament takes place at Westpac Stadium this weekend and as always the New Zealand team are desperate to win.

Coach Gordon Tietjens says Tokula impressed during the training camps and believes the big Fijian has the potential to be a bonafide gamebreaker.

Tietjens says the New Zealand squad will have pre-tournament trial games against the USA and Hong Kong early this week.
