The New Zealand 7s side hopes to improve on its defence ahead of the Cape Town tournament in South Africa in the weekend.
Andrew Knewstubb who’ll be leading the pack says the side needs to polish on few areas if they are to bag their second title.
“We are probably giving a lot of importance on the defence and came off sometimes and sometimes wasn’t the best. I think there is other things to work on but our defence wasn’t good last weekend.”
