All Blacks Sevens coach Clark Laidlaw has made two injury-enforced changes for the Vancouver world series tournament this weekend.
Radionz reports, Andrew Knewstubb and Ngarohi McGarvey-Black have joined the team in Vancouver and replace the injured Akuila Rokolisoa and Kurt Baker, who have returned home.
Before missing the Las Vegas tournament last weekend, Knewstubb was the series leading points scorer. McGarvey-Black comes into the team after last playing in Cape Town in December.
Fijians Joe Ravouvou, Jona Nareki and Vilimoni Koroi have been retained in the squad.
Laidlaw says the quick turnaround made it an easy decision to bring in fresh legs.
NZ is pooled with Australia, Spain, and France in Pool C.
