AN experienced All Blacks Sevens team has been named with Bay of Plenty youngster Bailey Simonsson the only debutant.

"Bailey is a young kid who has come across from league and we are really impressed with him. He has a massive work ethic and its encouraging to see how he's come along," said All Blacks Sevens coach Clark Laidlaw.

Joe Webber and Joe Ravouvou join the team fresh from Mitre 10 Cup commitments while the remainder of the squad has been assembled in Mt Maunganui for the past month.

"This is true pre-season for us, we're a new team and new coaches and we will be coming up against some settled opposition.

"All the players will get game time and we will get to see our strengths and weaknesses. We're interested to see where we are at against some good teams," said Laidlaw.

The All Blacks Sevens play Nauru and Cook Islands in pool play.

All Blacks Sevens: Scott Curry, Tim Mikkelson, Tone Ng Shiu, Teddy Stanaway, Dylan Collier, Bailey Simonsson, Joe Ravouvou, Isaac Te Tamaki, Regan Ware, Andrew Knewstubb, Joe Webber, Sione Molia.
