NZI Sevens General Manager, Steve Walters, said: “We are delighted to confirm the tournament dates for next year, knowing Wellington and the fans alike will once again embrace the NZI Sevens. Our tenth anniversary event was our best tournament yet and we look forward to an even better event in 2010.”
