Adam Zaruba and Admir Cejvanovic have been recalled to Canada's Sevens squad for the penultimate tournament of the World Series in Paris.

Cejvanovic missed out in Singapore with an injury while Zaruba hasn't featured since Vancouver.

John Moonlight once again captains Canada and is joined by Phil Berna, Luke Bradley, Justin Douglas, Mike Fuailefau, Lucas Hammond, Nathan Hirayama, Luke McCloskey, Matt Mullins, Conor Trainor and Sean White.

"We're certainly excited for Paris," head coach Liam Middleton said.

"It presents another opportunity for us to get out and face good opposition. There are no real goals in terms of the outcome of the tournament. It's about playing well."

With the Olympic repecharge in Monaco fast approaching, Middleton is hoping to use the Paris Sevens, as well as the London Sevens the following week, as part of final preparations for the qualifier.

"There's so much spoken about the qualifier and it will mean so much to the teams participating in it," Middleton said.

"However, with our focus on Paris and London it really is part of that process which is about getting out there, playing well and to our potential and then taking that momentum into the qualifier."
