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.

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

France Sevens: Jérémy Aicardi, Jean-Pascal Barraque, Terry Bouhraoua (captain), Julien Candelon, Manöel Dall Igna, Alexandre Gracbling, Vincent Inigo, Pierre-Gilles Lakafia, Jonathan Laugel, Jean-Baptiste Mazoue, Kelegh Moutome, Stephen Parez, Sacha Valleau.
