The New Zealand women development 7s team aim to reap good results during the Oceania Sevens Championship at the ANZ Stadium, Suva today

Team captain Janna Vaughan said they are ready and confident to deliver during the competition

“We have really progressed very well each day,” Vaughan said

“We are excited to go out there and play and we are really confident with where we are at the moment.

“As a captain I just want to make sure my players are confident and ready to play.

“They need to be comfortable in expressing themselves and not to be scared to make mistakes.

“I think if they are relaxed and comfortable than they will be able to play some really good rugby.”

Vaughan added the inclusion of three experienced players boosted the morale of the young reps.

“There are three contracted players Shakira Baker, Terina Te Tamaki and Huia Harding who will be assisting the young players,” she said

“It took a couple of days to work combinations out and we have really come out together quite well.

“It is really good having experienced around the young players that are coming up.”

The Kiwis will play New Caledonia at 12.21am, Cook Islands 2.30pm and Fiji Airways Fijiana at 5.30pm.
