NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 22/02/2017

Women's Sevens world series leaders New Zealand have introduced uncapped Cheyelle Robins-Reti in a lone change for the tournament in Las Vegas.

Robins-Reti exchanges roles with Renee Wickliffe, who will be a travelling reserve for next week's third-round event.

Coach Allan Bunting has unveiled an otherwise experienced squad for a campaign, which features pool games against Brazil, England and Olympic champions Australia.

Bunting says a surprise loss to the United States in the Sydney semi-finals delivered an important reminder.

"We need to treat every game as a final, and that it doesn't matter who we are playing," he said.

"We will face Australia in pool play in Vegas, but we are focused on game one against Brazil. We are confident that with the right focus we can take our game up another notch and play with greater consistency."

Sarah Goss (captain), Michaela Blyde, Kelly Brazier, Theresa Fitzpatrick, Tyla Nathan-Wong, Cheyelle Robins-Reti, Alena Saili, Terina Te Tamaki, Ruby Tui, Kat Whata-Simpkins, Niall Williams, Portia Woodman. Travelling reserves: Rebekah Cordero-Tufuga, Renee Wickliffe.
