Sevens Coach Lee Blackett has announced a strong 12-man squad, made up of 10 members of Wasps Senior Squad and two members of Wasps’ Senior Academy.
Wasps will utilise some of the sevens experience at the club with new signing Marcus Watson, who won a silver medal in the sevens at the 2016 Rio Olympics with Team GB, set to make his first appearance in black and gold.
Christian Wade will again add his substantial sevens experience to the squad, having previously played for England Sevens and been a vital member of Wasps’ sevens squad for the last couple of years.
Dan Robson captains a squad including Josh Bassett, Brendan Macken, Guy Thompson, Alex Rieder and Craig Hampson, who were all involved in winning the tournament last year.
The team announced today boasts the likes of Guy Armitage and Gaby Lovobalavu, also set to make his first appearance for the club.
There are also opportunities for new senior academy signing Gabriel Oghre and Owain James.
