    An eye to the future in coach Allan Bunting's 2019 Black Ferns Sevens squad

    An eye to the future in coach Allan Bunting's 2019 Black Ferns Sevens squad

    Three of the 21-strong squad named today are fresh out of high school, while more than half the squad is under 24 years old.

    Bunting says they are focused on the Tokyo Olympics, but there's more than an eye to Paris 2024 too.

    He says they have a good leadership group, a good middle group and a new group which provides balance.
