Sevens players are making their presence felt in Wellington, being spotted on the streets and even taking a plunge into a somewhat chilly Wellington Harbour today.
The All Blacks Sevens team were among those taking the leap, in between training for the two-day Wellington Sevens tournament, which starts on Friday.
The tournament is known as much for its off-field antics as its on-field tactics, and police are encouraging people to have fun and stay safe.
"If you are heading out to the games, or joining the fun afterwards, make sure you stay safe and sensible; look after your mates, remember to drink responsibly, grab something to eat and plan a way to get home," Police Operation Commander Inspector Terry van Dillen said.
Wellington Free Ambulance paramedics and volunteers will be on the sideline at Westpac Stadium to take care of the fans.
"We'll be there in case people are unexpectedly sick or hurt. Our message to fans is if you're not feeling well come up and talk to one of our people," head of emergency preparedness Warren Cornor said.
"We'll be happy to help."
