Defending World Cup champions New Zealand will miss Super 12 stay-at-homer Joe Rokocoko and injured star Roy Kinikinilau. But young skipper Liam Messam still has enough ammunition in his team of tried and tested sevens veterans to emerge easy pool winners. Scotland will test everyone and it will be a bun fight for second place with Tonga, Ireland, South Korea and the United States all capable of causing an upset. A tough group. Watch out for Asian sevens champs South Korea.
