The New Zealand men have been given top seeding for the Rugby World Cup Sevens tournament in Moscow in June.
Consistency over the past 2 years in the IRB world series, New Zealand has built an unassailable points lead ahead of the RWC Sevens Pool Allocation Draw, which takes place in Moscow at the end of the month.
New Zealand will be joined in band one for the World Cup Sevens pool allocation draw by Fiji, South Africa, England, Samoa and Australia, who have all secured their places.
New Zealand's experienced playmaker Tomasi Cama says the World Cup Sevens in Moscow is the big focus for them this year... they haven't won it for many years now so they want to turn that around in 2013.
Meanwhile, the women's Rugby World Cup Sevens rankings were confirmed last week with England, Australia, Canada and USA making up the top band.
