The son of an All Blacks great has committed to sevens - for now.

Niko Jones, son of Sir Michael, has signed with the All Blacks sevens for the upcoming season.

Jones captained the St Peters College first XV to the national title this year.

Under-20's player Scott Gregory has also signed, as have 2018 breakthrough players Akuila Rokolisoa and Ngarohi McGarvey-Black.


Meanwhile, veteran Kurt Baker has penned a new deal keeping him with the side until the Tokyo Olympics.

"This year was a perfect example with Etene Nanai-Seturo and Salesi Rayasi playing a year of sevens before picking up Super Rugby contracts," New Zealand sevens coach Clark Laidlaw said in a statement.

"Scott and Niko are outstanding young athletes and its exciting to see what they might be able to achieve in this form of the game. Our job is to develop these young men on and off the field. Both have big futures ahead of them."

Christchurch is rumoured to be Jones' preferred Super Rugby destination but New Zealand Rugby board member Sir Michael Jones said a decision is yet to be made, according to Stuff.
