NEWS: All Blacks Sevens Captain Scott Curry has been ruled out of the Hong Kong tournament, which starts on Friday, after coming down with the flu this week. 

Experienced forward Sam Dickson moves into the starting 12 to replace Curry, while the vastly experienced DJ Forbes takes over the captaincy duties.
 
"Unfortunately for us Scott has been ruled out of this weekend's tournament with an illness. 

It is always a big loss losing your captain so close to kick-off but on the positive side we welcome back the experienced Sam Dickson into the 12, who is a more than adequate replacement," said All Blacks Sevens Head Coach Scott Waldrom.
 
New Zealand Sevens squad - revised: DJ Forbes (captain), Dylan Collier, Sam Dickson, Iopu Iopu-Aso, Trael Joass, Vilimoni Koroi, Tim Mikkelson, Sione Molia, Joe Ravouvou, Isaac Te Tamaki, Beaudein Waaka, Regan Ware, Andrew Knewstubb (Tasman).
