The most experienced campaigner in the current Australian Sevens squad, Captain Ed Jenkins has competed in two Rugby World Cup Sevens campaigns and won a silver medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Jenkins made his debut in the shortened form of the game in Wellington at the back end of 2007 but succumbed to injury and didn’t play again until the following season.

A member of Australia's Cup winning sides in London (2010) and Tokyo (2012), Jenkins missed most of the 2012-13 season after receiving an injury during the opening round on the Gold Coast.

He returned to captain the side at the concluding round of the season in London and continued his leadership at Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013 and the current HSBC Sevens World Series.

Jenkins has an identical twin brother Jono who currently plays with French side Narbonne.
