Experienced campaigner Alex Davis returns to the team following an injury, as does Will Homer. Ross McCann is also back in the squad after missing the third leg of the HSBC SVNS Series due to a call-up into the Scotland 15s squad in the build-up to the Guinness Six Nations. Charlton Kerr is the final new addition to the squad, who is returning to the World Series set-up for the first time since 2022.

The four players making way for the returning quartet are Jordan Edmunds, Jamie Farndale, Jamie Barden and Jamie Adamson.
