All Black players Kurt Baker and Belgium Tuatagaloa have been ruled out of this weekend's London leg of the IRB Sevens World Series, after being injured during the Glasgow tournament last week.

Baker has sustained a foot injury and Tuatagaloa has injured his ankle.

Coach Gordon Tietjens called in replacements - current contracted All Black Sevens player David Raikuna (North Harbour) and promising 18-year-old Tevita Li (North Harbour).

Raikuna last played in Las Vegas.

Tevita Li, who plays on the wing or at fullback, was selected for the New Zealand Schools team last year and attended an All Black Sevens training camp earlier this year.

London is the last leg of the 2012/2013 IRB Sevens World Series.

New Zealand have already secured the series, winning their 11th title after finishing second in last weekend's Glasgow leg.
