    New Zealand Sevens wider squad for Commonwealth Games: Sosene Anesi (Waikato), Charles Baxter (Bay of Plenty), Josh Blackie (Otago), Edwin Cocker (Otago), Tamati Ellison (Wellington), DJ Forbes (Auckland), Doug Howlett (Auckland), Craig Hudson (North Harbour), Nigel Hunt (Wellington), Tafai Ioasa (Hawke’s Bay), Cory Jane (Wellington), Tanerau Latimer (Bay of Plenty), Zar Lawrence (North Harbour), James Maher (Counties Manukau), Lachie Munro (Auckland), Alfred Pelenise (Canterbury), Lote Raikabula (Wellington), Hayden Reid (Bay of Plenty), Alando Soakai (Otago), Dwayne Sweeney (Waikato), Onosa’i Tololima-Auva’a (Auckland), Amasio Valence (Auckland).

    at the moment there are 22 players...as we get closer to the games the squad will be cut down to 12..

    NZRFU have allowed 5 S14 players...1 from each franchise..they are:
    Doug Howlett
    Sosene Anesi
    Josh Blackie
    Tamati Ellison
    Tanerau Latimer

    from what i saw in the wellington tournament...the nz team was pretty solid
    in the semi-final against fiji i thought they had played well..they had alot of skills but lacked pace and composure at times...and that was evident against fiji

    lol so true sambad 5.

    aus i heard would have at least 4 super 14 players maybe more
     
  9. thats a weak ass nz team,im expecting fiji to take it out

    william ryder and danivuca are awesome azz..if they had a full strength squad they would surely win this tournament with ease in saying that the comp is pretty even..thats the thing i like about sevens...there are bound to be big upsets in any given match

    I think New Zealand is trying to get some flair and speed in the team, Good to see Howlett in the Squad, Looks like hes focusing on speed again.

    Dont know though Ryder has killed the last two tournaments. Daunivucu is just as good with abit more Power.

    Ryder is good with the ball but on defence he's a turnstile.
     
  12. A bit like Serevi then ;)

    What do you NZ people think of Brent Wilson? He's joined us until the end of the season, with the view of staying longer if he impresses.

    He's been part of 7s before.
     
  14. He played pretty well for North Harbour in the NPC and is not a bad player if he stays, sad for North Harbour.
