MacRae named in Wales 7s squad

Wales 7s head coach Richie Pugh has named Llanelli hooker Morgan MacRae in his squad for the forthcoming HSBC Sevens World Series.

19-year-old MacRae has been named in the squad for the upcoming two rounds, taking place in Malaga and Seville.

“Two weeks isn’t the longest of preps going into a World Series but it has been a really positive experience and I’m happy to have got selection done,” said Pugh.

“It’s brilliant to see a Wales side back on the World Series, it’s been a little strange watching it the last year and seeing GB represent us – to get the three feathers back on the series is great for the programme.”

Wales will take on France, Kenya and Canada in Pool D in Malaga.
