Te Nana's absence would be a major blow to sevens coach Gordon Tietjens , who is likely to be without Craig Newby and Tony Monaghan for the coming wekend's tournament in Japan.Newby has an ankle injury and Monaghan is probably concussed after being knocked unconscious during the final against Fiji.
