    The Wellington leg of the HSBC World Sevens Series kicks off on Saturday with the likelihood of poor attendance dominating media reports in the build-up to the two-day event. The sevens was once the hottest ticket in the New Zealand capital and tickets for both days at the 35,000-capacity Westpac Stadium sold out within minutes.
