Old Collegians Make All Blacks Sevens Squad

Congratulations to Old Collegians Fa'asiu Fuata'i and Jordan Bunce who have been named in the 2014-2015 All Blacks Sevens squad.

Out of the six newcomers to the team, coach Gordon Tietjens is most excited about 20-year-old Manawatu back Jordan Bunce; son of 55-Test All Black Frank Bunce.

The team finished fifth in the opening tournament of the 2014-2015 IRB Sevens World Series in Australia last month, and need to finish in the top four of the series to secure Olympic qualification.

The squad is currently in Dubai for the Rugby Sevens World Tournament, and the full contracted team will be finalised following the National Sevens Tournament in Rotorua next January.

Fa'asiu attended King's from 2007-2011 and was in the First XV from 2009-2011, and Jordan attended from 2008-2011.
