The All Blacks Sevens coach Gordon Tietjens has named two new caps in the 12-strong squad for this weekend's fourth round of the world series in Wellington.

The newcomers are Hawkes Bay Bay winger Gillies Kaka, who's overcome a shoulder injury to make the squad and Auckland's Rocky Khan.

Khan, who was born in Fiji, turned down approaches from Fiji rugby to sign a Sevens contract with the New Zealand union.

New Zealand go into the Wellington leg of the competition with a 14-point lead over second-placed France.
