New Zealand Sevens coach Gordon Tietjens says he can pick up to five players from New Zealand's Super 14 squads for March's World Cup in Dubai.

Tietjens says Hurricane's fullback Cory Jane and fellow former sevens stars and All Blacks Joe Rokococo and Isaiah Toeava from the Blues will be firmly on his radar when it comes time to select his world cup squad.

Next week Tietjens will run a four day camp and trial at Mount Maunganui after which he will will whittle a 24 strong squad down to 17 for next month's Wellington leg of the IRB World Series.
