Scotland international Damien Hoyland is the only change to Calum MacRae’s sevens squad for the penultimate round of the 2015-16 World Rugby HSBC Sevens Series in Paris.
Hoyland will travel as part of the 12-man squad to make his first appearance on the circuit since the final round of last year’s series, in London.
In his eight World Series caps, Hoyland has accumulated 18 tries, five of which came in his last outing at Twickenham, prior to making his test debut in a RWC 2015 warm-up match against Italy last August.
“I'm delighted to welcome Damien back into the squad for Paris," said MacRae. “Last series he was a stand out performer for us, and gained a full international cap off the back of his displays.
“He is excited about playing on the World Series again and is high on confidence having just been selected for the national team’s tour to Japan. Damien will add potency to our attack.”
Scotland squad: Scott Riddell, Dougie Fife, Hugh Blake, James Johnstone, Nick McLennan, Mark Robertson, Jamie Farndale, Damien Hoyland, Joe Nayacavou, Scott Wight (captain), James Fleming, Glenn Bryce.
