New Zealand will rely on a Fijian, the sevens skills of Eric Rush and the power of Jonah Lomu to defend their Cathay Pacific HongkongBank Sevens title later this month. In a bid to emulate the Fijians and score a hat-trick of Cup victories, the New Zealand Rugby Football Union has picked a talented young squad buttressed by sevens experts Lomu, Rush and Glen Osborne. The three All Blacks are not part of the Kiwi team now playing in the Fiji Sevens, but are expected to make the trip to Hong Kong for the March 29-31 tournament. A 14-strong squad have been named for the Hong Kong Sevens and New Zealand sevens coach Gordon Tietjens will announce his final selection after evaluating his side's performance in Fiji. Fijian Waisake Masirewa, who played last year for Fiji in the Hong Kong Sevens, is expected to be amongst the New Zealand party. Masirewa now turns out for New Zealand provincial side Counties and is a member of the Kiwi sevens team at the Fiji tournament. According to reports from Fiji yesterday, Masirewa played impressively as the Kiwis began their defence of the Fiji Sevens title with a 36-0 win over Uruguay and a 38-0 win over the Australian Fijians. Lomu spearheaded New Zealand's triumph last year at the Fiji Sevens, but due to the ongoing Super 12s, was unavailable for selection this year. Provincial players contracted to the NZRFU - like Lomu, Rush, Osborne - will only be available for the week of the Hong Kong tournament, otherwise being committed to the Super 12s. In a report in a New Zealand paper, Tietjens said: 'We're going to have guys like Jonah and Rushie going to Hong Kong not having played a game of sevens. Certainly that's a big disadvantage and I just hope they can adjust within a week.' Despite taking a squad bereft of big names to the Fiji Sevens, the Kiwis have made a huge impression and are seemingly on target for a Cup final clash with Fiji today. England and Australia also named squads who will be trimmed down later. Lawrence Dallaglio, touted by the English media as a future England captain, is one of 15 players named in a squad that will eventually be trimmed to 10 players. The England team, managed by Andrew Harriman and coached by Les Cusworth, include some of the players who took part in last year's tournament when they made their Hong Kong Sevens debut. Captain Damian Hopley is joined by Five Nations player Tim Rodber, Chris Sheasby, Adedayo Adebayo, Dave Scully, Nick Beal and Nick Greenstock, all of whom have represented England at sevens, either at the World Cup in Murrayfield or Hong Kong, in the past. England will play in Pool B with Scotland, Argentina and Singapore. Australia have once again failed to land their main Test players. Even burly winger Joe Roff, who made a name for himself at last year's World Cup, is missing. Coached by former international Jeff Miller, the Australians will field only two players with previous Hong Kong experience, Brenton Fielke and Ryan Constable. Australia, five-time Cup winners whose last title was in 1988, meet Wales, Korea and Taiwan in Pool D.
