The tournament in New Zealand is the fifth of nine rounds in the HSBC Sevens World Series 2013/14, which is fascinatingly poised with South Africa leading the overall title race from defending champions, New Zealand, by just one point.

Key men return for the hosts New Zealand, Tomasi Cama back from injury alongside Sherwin Stowers and Ben Lam with Akira Ioane set to make his debut.

South Africa also make two changes, as do the defending tournament champions, England.
