Freddie Roddick captains the side for the first time as Alex Davis continues his rehabilitation from injury.Head coach Roques said: “We’re really looking forward to playing out in LA for the final leg of the 2022 World Sevens Series.“We’re delighted to welcome Tom Mitchell and Ethan Waddleton back to the group.

Editor’s pick:

“Tom has been in and around camp in the lead up to the Commonwealth Games and brings a wealth of experience into a young group having competed in two Olympic Games and two Commonwealth Games already so we know the capabilities he has on the pitch and around the group.“Ethan is a top quality player that also represented Team GB in Tokyo and brings his vast experience on the sevens circuit.“Freddie (Roddick) epitomises the values and behaviours we hold dear as a programme and thoroughly deserves his opportunity to captain England in our last appearance on the World Series.“This is our final tournament before the World Cup and we want to ensure we keep trying to build, learn and grow as a group.”
