SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT: France Sevens will head into the World Sevens Series opener in Dubai on December 2-3 without their top scorer of the 2015/16 season, Virimi Vakatawa.

The speedster is currently on duty with the French XVs team for the November internationals.

France finished 11th overall in the 2015/16 series, winning the Bowl (now called the Challenge Trophy) in Dubai. Their best performances of the series came in Cape Town and Paris, where they finished third on both occasions.

They will face Australia, Kenya and Japan in Pool D in Dubai.
