NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 12/05/2016

Injury has forced three seasoned sevens campaigners out of the All Blacks Sevens for this weekend's world series tournament in Paris.

Liam Messam, Tim Mikkelson and DJ Forbes have all been ruled out of the penultimate tournament.

Kurt Baker will captain the All Blacks Sevens, who were knocked out of the Singapore Sevens three weeks ago in the quarter-finals by South Africa.

With only next week's London tournament remaining after Paris, New Zealand sit third in the overall standings, 12 points behind leaders Fiji and four points astray of second-placed South Africa.

All Blacks Sevens: Pita Ahki, Kurt Baker (captain), Dylan Collier, Akira Ioane, Rieko Ioane, Gillies Kaka, Sione Molia, Lewis Ormond, Augustine Pulu, Teddy Stanaway, Regan Ware, Sonny Bill Williams.
