Qantas Australian Sevens squad named for London Sevens

The Qantas Australian Men’s Sevens team has been named for the final leg of the 2016/17 World Series, with coach Andy Friend making just two changes for the London tournament beginning on May 20.

Tom Kingston is back in the starting twelve after originally named as 13th man for Paris, although the 25-year old did a feature on day one in France after an injury to John Porch.

Speedster Brandon Quinn is the other change, as he returns to the lineup for the first time since Vancouver in March.

Australia is currently sixth in the HSBC Sevens World Series standings as they hunt down the USA for fifth, with the season to come to a close after London.

Qantas Australian Men’s Sevens Head Coach Andy Friend said: “We have a great opportunity to finish the season off strong in London, in what’s been a great year of regeneration for this young side.”

“Brandon Quinn comes into the side, he’s got great speed so we’ll be looking to utilise that on the edges. Tom (Kingston) has been involved in the last three tournaments so he knows what to expect, and what’s expected of him.

“We want to get back into the top eight in London after a disappointing weekend in Paris. We have a tough pool and I know all the boys are keen to bounce back into the quarters, the semis and beyond.”

Australia is in Pool D alongside England, Samoa and Spain with games LIVE across FOX Sports platforms.
