Forbes in fitness race

Date published: February 8 2015

New Zealand Sevens captain DJ Forbes is in a race against time to be fit for the next leg of the World Series in Las Vegas.

Forbes missed the final games as New Zealand lifted the Wellington title against England on Saturday.

The squad head out to Las Vegas on Monday, with Forbes doing his best to get his foot fully recovered in time to be available.

“A lot of swelling, a lot of bruising and quite a bit of pain,” Forbes told Newstalk ZB.

“So I took as many pills as I could legally, but it didn’t really give me that release,”

“Hopefully after a bit of time we’ll see how it goes.”
