Api Bavadra, 21, has been named in the England men’s rugby 7s core squad.

Fijian Api Bavadra, 21, has been named in the England men’s 7s rugby core squad, which is set to return to the HSBC World Sevens Series next month.

This was after the Great Britain Sevens competed in the opening two rounds in Dubai, as part of the standing agreement to play the calendar year 2021.

Bavadra first represented England at the Paris Sevens in 2019.

According to England rugby the squads will be based at Loughborough University, with the first camp taking place from January 4 in preparation for the tournament in Spain.

Tony Roques takes over as head coach of England men’s sevens team while former England rep James Rodwell, is appointed England women’s sevens head coach.

Rodwell worked with England sevens in a coaching capacity for the last two-and-a-half years and as an assistant coach for Great Britain since his retirement in May 2019.

The management team will have a new look when they return, with performance roles integrating across both the men’s and women’s programmes.

Both teams consist of a core contracted group with a number of other players being selected on an invitational basis from clubs and universities throughout the season on a camp-by-camp basis.

England men’s 7s core group:

Jamie Adamson, Jamie Barden, Api Bavadra, Tom Bowen, Max Clementson, Alex Davis, and Freddie Roddick.
