Taranaki might only have one representative, Kurt Baker, in the New Zealand sevens side for this week's IRB tournament in Wellington but the Australian squad has a player with close ties to the province.

Australian prop Ben Adams' father, Michael, was born and raised in Opunake and played in the front row for several Taranaki age-group sides before moving across the Tasman.

Ben was born in Mackay, Australia.

The tournament will be his second for Australia.

Will Aaron Cruden's omission hurt or help the All Blacks?

Hurt - he needs as much game time as possible.

Help - finally Beauden Barrett will get a proper run.

Hmmm - no biggie, just a temporary hitch.

Who is Cruden? I support the All Whites.
