Canada Men’s 7s have released their squad that will be in action at the Toulouse 7s and London 7s scheduled for later this month.
D’Shawn Bowen and Anton Ngongo retain their places after impressive performances in April. Brennig Prevost, David Richard and Alex Russell return to the roster after picking up minor injuries at the HSBC Canada Sevens in Vancouver and missing out on the RAN Sevens Qualifiers.
The trip to Toulouse marks new Assistant Coach Sean White’s first tour with the team. Should Jake Thiel feature in all six of Canada’s matches in France, he will pass White in Canada’s all-time HSBC Sevens Series appearance list, pulling level with Christoph Strubin on 98.
“Heading to Toulouse, we are pleased to welcome the likes of Brennig, David and Alex back into the roster,” said Paul. “As always, we’re looking forward to competing against the world’s best teams and to the opportunity to improve our place in the standings with three HSBC Sevens Series events remaining for our team this season.”
Canada will face Vancouver 7s Champions Argentina in Pool A, England and Japan.
