Cape Town - New Zealand's Sevens campaign at the 2018 Commonwealth Games was dealt a blow when star back Joe Webber was forced to withdraw from the squad due to injury. 

Webber, who was a member of his country's 2014 Commonwealth Games silver medal winning team, has been replaced by Akuila Rokolisoa, who made an impressive debut for the All Blacks Sevens in Hong Kong last weekend. 

Teddy Stanaway becomes the travelling reserve. 

The All Blacks Sevens kick off their campaign against Zambia on Saturday, followed by pool matches against Kenya and Canada.
