NZ have named their Comm Games squads:
The 26-rugby sevens athletes making up the men’s and women's squads for the Birmingham Commonwealth Games have been announced today in Mt Maunganui.www.allblacks.com
Very few newbies in the women's but plenty in the men's incl Che Clark who might just be the next big thing in NZ men's 7's (as Jaz Hotham will probably be the next big thing in the women's game).
Women's squad: Michaela Blyde, Kelly Brazier, Theresa Fitzpatrick, Sarah Hirini (captain), Stacey Fluhler, Jazmin Hotham, Shiray Kaka, Tyla Nathan-Wong, Risaleaana Pouri-Lane, Alena Saili, Niall Williams, Tenika Willison, Portia Woodman. Travelling reserves: Terina Te Tamaki and Mahina Paul. Non-travelling reserves: Shakira Baker, Ruby Tui, Manaia Nuku, Tysha Ikenasio.
