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.

A great move, he's still world class

Okay for one season, but no more

Depriving a more deserving player of a contract

Great for the All Blacks but of no use to Canes

Hmmm, I'll vote in 12 months' time
