With only a day to go until a sold-out HSBC New Zealand Sevens, we’ve got seven players for you to keep your eye on this weekend in the fourth round of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.
Franco Sabato – Argentina
A frightening prospect for any defence, Franco Sabato has electrifying pace. His fast feet open up chances from all over the park. He’s this weekend’s one to watch and after scoring six tries in Sydney, for good reason.
Caleb Clarke – New Zealand
The young New Zealander is new to the sevens series this year, but you may recognise the name. He was a member of the New Zealand team that won the World Rugby U20 Championship in emphatic style in Georgia last June. Take a breath when he gets the ball, he’s got bags of pace and makes special things happen on the pitch.
Tim Mikkelson – New Zealand
Mikkelson is a veteran on the series. He’s been round the block, has bags full of experience and serious talent. He currently sits on 197 tries and will be looking to break 200 in his home town this weekend.
Luke Morgan – Wales
Morgan has got serious gas. The pace man broke the 1000-try mark last weekend, he’s one of the fastest on the series and he’s a devastating finisher. Don’t give him the outside or he will take it.
Eroni Sau – Fiji
The Fijian back is an absolute beast. He’s great both sides of the ball. A livewire on attack with delicate hands and a heavy hitter on defence.
Ruaridh McConnochie – England
An imposing figure, McConnochie has some gas to back up his physicality. He’s played in 22 events and scored a total of 31 tries. England will be hoping to get the best out of him this weekend and Bath will be keeping a close eye on their new signing.
Oscar Ouma – Kenya
Big, fast and strong. Ouma can mix it with the best on the series. He’s a constant threat on attack. Go high and you’ll get a face full of hand. Give him room and he’s got good enough footwork to cause you trouble.
