Australia unleash arsenal for Rugby World Cup Sevens

With the Rugby World Cup Sevens set to kick off on July 20th to 22 participating teams are unleashing their strongest squads and the latest side to unleash their arsenals is Australia.
Henry Hutchison former Rebels speedster returns to the sevens team together with Jesse Parahi who has managed to be fit for the occasion after struggling with a persistent knee injury he picked at Singapore. The squad will miss Tom Connors presence in the tournament.
Tim Walsh the men’s head coach said they have prepared adequately for the different format of the World Cup.
“We are used to playing six games over two days and not four games over three days, so in order to replicate the Rugby World Cup format we have adjusted our training and strategies to assist with our mental preparation,” he said.
Australia are to begin their campaign against the winner of the preliminary match against France and Jamaica.
Australia men’s Sevens squad: Lachlan Anderson, Tim Anstee, Lewis Holland (c), Henry Hutchison, Boyd Killingworth, Maurice Longbottom, Tom Lucas, Liam McNamara, Sam Myers, Ben O’Donnell, Jesse Parahi, John Porch, Brandon Quinn
