Rotorua will host next year's national rugby sevens competition for the first time, after Queenstown did the honours for the past 10 years.

In 24 days, the Rotorua International Stadium will stage the two day event on January 11th and 12th, with 26 provincial teams vying for national honours.

The women's competition has been expanded to 10 teams, up from six last year, while 16 men's teams will again compete.
