Rokolisoa included in NZ 7s team

Fiji-born playmaker Akuila Rokolisoa has been included in New Zealand's 13-member squad for this month's Singapore and Vancouver legs of the World Sevens Series.
 
Coach Clark Laidlaw has named a relatively new team which includes debutants Leroy Carter, Moses Leo, Brady Rush, Caleb Tangitau and Kitiona Vai.
 
54 World Series tournaments veteran Sam Dickson will lead the youthful side at the two tournaments.
 
Dickson said he has big boots to fill, recalling the likes of Mikkelson, Curry and DJ Forbes who have worn the captain's armband previously.
 
"I've always looked up to those boys and played a lot of my rugby with them so it’s an honour to be the next one to help lead this team, lucky I've got some other good leaders in the team to help me along the way.
 
All Blacks Sevens squad: Leroy Carter, Dylan Collier, Sam Dickson (C), Trael Joass, Andrew Knewstubb, Moses Leo, Tone Ng Shiu, Akuila Rokolisoa, Brady Rush, Caleb Tangitau, Kitiona Vai, Regan Ware, Joe Webber.
