Australia currently sits fourth on the World Series Standings on 74 points, trailing Canada (78), the USA (80) and New Zealand (92).Ā 

In fifth place sits France (60) with the top four sides at the end of the round earning automatic qualification for the Olympics next year.Ā 

Dom Du Toit returns to the squad from injury while Rhiannon Byers will earn her first cap for Australia.Ā 

Byers, a product of the University Sevens Series where she impressed selectors with her performances for the University of New England. She was then selected in a development Australian side that won the Oceania Sevens Championship in a tough final against New Zealand last year.Ā 

Byers was called into training with the Aussie 7s and was recently rewarded with a full-time contract in the program, completing her progression to the national fold.Ā 

ā€œSince joining the program, Rhiannon has thrown herself into everything weā€™ve asked of her and is continuing to grow as a player,"Ā coach John Manenti said.

ā€œThere are no easy games in Sevens; Ireland, Spain and Canada will be a very tough Pool, but the squad is looking forward to getting back to France and finishing the job on what has been a tough Series.ā€Ā Ā
