Taranaki’s Waisake Naholo and Waikato’s Johnathan Malo have been called into the New Zealand Sevens squad for the Las Vegas leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series.

Arnold has been ruled out after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament (knee) in New Zealand’s first match against Scotland on Day One of the Hertz Sevens. Gear will re-join the Highlanders after only being available for Wellington leg of the Series.
