DJ Forbes in the house for Auckland

New Zealand Sevens skipper DJ Forbes has been called into the Auckland squad as the side faces a mini-injury crisis.

Both Daniel Braid and Onosai’i Tololima Auva’a were forced to leave the field in Saturday’s commanding Air New Zealand Cup win over Tasman.

Coach Pat Lam says Tololima Auva’a is very doubtful for this Friday’s match against Otago after taking a head knock, while there’s also concern for Braid.

Braid has taken a knock to his shoulder and is rated a 50-50 chance of playing.

There are a number of players in the squad that can play at openside like Jerome Kaino and Angus MacDonald, Lam says.
