Included in Ben Ryan's squad is Quins Academy player Ollie Lindsay-Hague. Ollie was very impressive for Quins at the Middlesex Sevens and has now recovered from an injury to his hip flexor and has already appeared for Harlequins 'A' team this season as well as for his loan club at Rosslyn Park. Commenting on his selection today, Academy Manager Tony
Quins Academy Manager, Tony Diprose, said:
"I'm obviously pleased for Ollie and his selection for the training squad. It will be good for his overall development as a player whilst he also works at his 15-a-side skills at Quins and Rosslyn Park"
Ben Ryan, said: "The IRB Sevens World Series gets more competitive and exciting every year. The Olympic decision is days away and this additional possibility has already added to the promise of a new era in world rugby and sevens.
"If you stand still at the moment, you tend to get left behind by the other nations so we have worked very hard at continuing the momentum gained from reaching four finals out of the eight last year. Many of the squad have been retained - ten that have appeared in finals last year - and additional players include some from the unbeaten U18 side and JWC U20 finalists.
"The fitness standards have also risen, with minimum standards now being enforced across the board and some fantastic partnerships being developed with the RFU and other world class facilities and bodies in the UK. We all know what a hugely competitive but rewarding season this could be and can't wait for it all to start in earnest."
