Maciu Malo
Monday, January 27, 2014

ALL Blacks 7s playmaker Tomasi Cama is hoping to secure a spot for the world champion at the Wellington 7s.

The star playmaker missed out on the Las Vegas 7s tournament because of injury and he is ready to stamp his dominance at the Cake Tin.

Cama said his inclusion in the New Zealand 7s team for Wellington would depend on his mentor Gordon Tietjens.

"I am targeting to play in Wellington but will see how my calf injury is in the next few days," he said

"But even if I'm fit to play it will be up to Titch weather he wants me in the team for Wellington.

"It also depends on how the boys pull up after Vegas with injuries but I'm sure the boys will deliver the goods so they can have the momentum going into Wellington 7s."

The 2012 IRB 7s player of the year has also made his intention clear in this year's Commonwealth Games.

He said he wanted to help the New Zealand team in defending the gold medal.

"People in Fiji can expect me to play in this year's series," said Cama.

"Obviously I want to be part of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this year as NZ is the defending champion.

"But at this stage, I'm just focusing on getting my rehab and getting my injuries right.

"Also I will work hard and get fit and play some good footy once I'm back in team and work hard try to win the 7s World Series and Commonwealth Games Gold Medal.

"It's going to be another long season ahead and I'm really looking forward to the challenges ahead," he added.

The former Nabua Secondary School student first played for the New Zealand 7s in 2005 and has created a history of being the top points scorer for the world champions.

He has recorded a massive 1910 points and 139 tries during his nine-year stint with in the black jersey.

Cama has also won the Rugby Sevens World Cup, Commonwealth Games gold medal and IRB 7s series for New Zealand.
