South Africa’s bid to win the World Rugby Sevens Series 2016-17 title has received a major boost after the return of Rosko Specman.
The playmaker who has played a major role in their main cup win in Dubai, Sydney, Wellington and Las Vegas missed the Hong Kong and Singapore legs due to a hamstring injury picked in Vancouver.
Youngster Zain Davis has been left out of the squad due to the World Under 20 Championship commitments and has been replaced by Dewald Human.
A final appearance for South Africa in Paris 7s will see them emerge overall winners of the World Sevens series since they are 25 points ahead of second placed Fiji 7s.
South Africa are in Poo A alongside Canada, Scotland and Japan.
South Africa squad: Chris Dry, Philip Snyman (captain), Dylan Sage, Ryan Oosthuizen, Werner Kok, Siviwe Soyizwapi, Branco du Preez, Tim Agaba, Dewald Human, Cecil Afrika, Rosko Specman, Ruhan Nel, Sandile Ncgobo
