Henry Hutchinson will once again captain the side, joined by Malaga Impact Player of the Tournament Corey Toole, Josh Turner, Stu Dunbar and Maurice Longbottom.

“We played some fantastic Rugby last weekend in Malaga, where at times we seemed unstoppable in our attack," Manenti said in a statement.

“As the team continues to spend more time together, we are continuing to build on our consistency, and that will be a big piece on ensuring we are a regular finisher at the top of the tournament ladder.

“This weekend, we will welcome Henry Paterson back to the World Series fold. Henry has been a big component of the men’s program for the last 18 months, and I’m excited to see him return to the World Series.”

They will then face Scotland (7:07 pm) and Canada (Sunday 12:35 am) to round out Pool D as they attempt to solidify their top three ranking in the World Sevens.
