NZ Sevens look to eliminate last year's faults

With two players to be dropped tomorrow, Sevens veteran DJ Forbes and his team are leaving it all out on the paddock today.

With players like Gillies Kaka hitting good form, and Oriental-Rongotai local Ambrose Curtis onside, the team is looking good.  But after a shock loss to Kenya last year, the squad knows they can't count their chickens before they hatch.

After working up a sweat, the boys were rewarded with an afternoon dip in Central Wellington, delighting some keen fans.

The team will hit out with Australia tomorrow for a training game.  Following that, Tietjens will make his final cut for the tournament.
