Police in Wellington say the crowd behaviour on the first day of the Rugby Sevens tournament was an improvement on last year.

There were four arrests yesterday at the stadium and eight people were evicted from the stadium.

Overnight in Wellington there were a total of 40 arrests.

A police spokesman said this was just slightly higher rates of arrest than a ordinary Friday night in the capital.

Police hoped the low rate of offending at the Sevens would remain low today.
