Players to Watch: Vancouver 7s

As the players prepare for yet another stop on the World Sevens Series circuit we have picked out the five players to keep an eye out for this weekend.

The 2017 World Sevens Player of the Year has been in fine form in 2018 and scored what has been dubbed by many as the greatest try ever scored in World Rugby Sevens history in Las Vegas.
