Is New Zealand really a dark horse in mens rugby?

No...It's Number 1 and current World Cup champs.

BUT in the SEVENS version of the game it is rated about number four - it used to be 1. There has been a huge internal split between the standard 15 man game and the 7s. They used to share resources i.e. players but NZRU places priority on the All Blacks (15 man team) to keep them first.

Sevens at the CWGs in the mens game pretty much will go:

Fiji (current Olympic champs): Gold

South Africa: Silver

Australia: Bronze

England (current Olympic Silver) 4th

Scotland, Canada, Wales, Kenya, Samoa, and New Zealand all have a chance to cause an upset and medal. USA, Japan and Argentina - top teams - aren't there as they are not in the Commonwealth.

Sevens is a highly fluid game and teams need to show up with their best game on match day.
