Wednesday Morning Round Up

All Blacks Sevens name squad for Dubai

Coach Clark Laidlaw has announced Scott Curry and Tim Mikkelson will co-captain the team for the busy 2017/2018 season that includes the Commonwealth Games and Rugby World Cup Sevens.

Laidlaw has selected 14 players to travel, all with previous Sevens World Series experience.

Brumbies sign Chance Peni

 Brumbies have signed former Wests Tigers and Western Force winger Chance Peni on a two-year deal for the 2018 Super Rugby season.

In late 2016 Peni decided to return home to Perth and take up a contract with the Western Force under new Head Coach Dave Wessels. 

A skillful winger with silky skills and electric pace, Peni dominated the early rounds of Super Rugby in 2017, scoring a highlight reel of tries and proving he had a bright future in the 15-man game.
