Harlequins confirmed today (23rd May) that Chris Brooker is leaving the club to join Worcester Warriors.
Quins will take on three Premiership rivals at the first round of the event in the form of Exeter Chiefs, Bath Rugby and London Irish.
And the 20-year-old sevens expert, who has competed in 11 World Series events for England in the shorter form of the game, will not be taking the competition lightly when the tournament kicks off at the Rec.
"All the teams competing are Premiership clubs and will inevitably all be very strong at the tournament, so it's up to us to prove ourselves as a team and as individuals," said Lindsay-Hague.
"Sevens is an incredible test of fitness, your speed and strength both need to be up to scratch or you can get found out but we have already been back at training for a couple of weeks here.
"Having said that, it's not just about fitness for us, we will be going there to win the tournament, I've never competed in the JP Morgan before but from what I have heard about the players involved it's going to be tough.
"I really enjoy sevens and have got a good amount of experience playing it so hopefully this will be a chance to prove myself and get a chance in the 15-man format of the game."
Lindsay-Hague made a couple of starts for Harlequins last year and, with a number of players likely to be on international duty come the start of the Premiership season, the 20-year-old will want to come out of the blocks flying this time around.
And the former Millfield school pupil, who can play wing or full back, admits that having broken into the international sevens fold, the 15-man game is now his main target.
"Sevens will be something I will always be involved in, I love the game and when you're not playing for Harlequins for whatever reason it's a great way to stay sharp," he added.
"But with players like Ugo (Monye) potentially away at the World Cup that could free up some places in the Harlequins side and I'm desperate to start to make some more first-team appearances.
"With any luck my versatility will be a big help in that respect and, even if I'm not starting, might give me a chance to make the bench and come on and show what I can do."
