England's Tom Mitchell will miss the last round of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in London this weekend.

The influential skipper (pictured above) was ruled out of the event due to injury after his side finished fourth in Paris last weekend. He will be replaced by Phil Burgess on Saturday and Sunday in Twickenham.

Meanwhile, all 16 teams have announced their squads for the tournament with a lot in the line in London. Japan will have to put in a momentous performance if they are to stay on the series next season as they sit at the bottom of the table. 

New Zealand, who finished third in France last weekend, introduce Tamati Samuels and Jessie Houston who are joining the side for the first time with Andrew Knewstubb returning from injury. DJ Forbes, who maked his 150th series try in Paris, leads the side.


USA's Folau Nieu will make his 50th series appearance in Twickenham while speedster Perry Baker in currently on course to claim the series try scorer accolade, however England's Dan Norton may have something to say about that. 

South Africa will raise the series trophy aloft on Sunday evening after the London title champions are crowned - who that will be, remains to be seen.
