GB Sevens have named their men’s and women’s squads for the upcoming HSBC Perth SVNS, making multiple changes to both teams.


Both squads have been tweaked slightly since the Dubai and Cape Town legs of the SVNS series, with Ciaran Beattie making two changes for the women’s squad and Tony Roques making three changes to the men’s squad for the Perth leg, which begins on Friday.

Abi Burton and Alicia Maude have come into the squad for Grace Crompton and Lisa Thomson after the women’s eleventh place finish in Dubai and eighth place finish in Cape Town.

In the men’s squad, Jordan Edmunds, Jamie Adamson and Ethan Waddleton have come in for Alex Davis, Matt Davidson and Ross McCann after a tenth place finish in Dubai and ninth in Cape Town. Roques has been forced into a change with his squad after McCann was called into Gregor Townsend’s 15s squad for the Guinness Six Nations this week.
