All Blacks 7s captain Tom Mikkelson says they need to have a solid start and maintain it throughout the game if they are to win in Hamilton.
This after the side struggled to overcome Spain in its last pool match 24-0.

Mikkelson says they need to maintain their consistency from their first two pool matches and better their game.
“We started the first two games really well and we started well in our last pool match but we ran out and we go turnovers and I think if we start well today we will take it through the quarterfinal.”
New Zealand meets Australia in the third quarterfinal at 11.20am.
Meanwhile, the Fiji Airways men’s 7s side meets Canada at 10.36 tomorrow morning and the second cup quarterfinal sees Samoa taking on South Africa at 10.58am while USA meets Scotland at 11:42am in the last Cup quarterfinal.
