New Zealand are chasing a ninth World Sevens title in Edinburgh this weekend, but they need to do more than just win this last round of the Series.

Gordon Tietjens' side also need the series leaders, Samoa, to not even make the final.

The two teams may meet in the quarter-finals and the New Zealand captain, DJ Forbes, says if that happens, all the pressure will be on Samoa.

He says even though Samoa have been winning the clashes between the two teams all year, New Zealand are at the stage where they have nothing to lose in a quarter-final meeting.
