Earl Rose

Named: Earl Rose

Western Province have named former Lions player Earl Rose in their squad for the World Club 7s at Twickenham.

The South African outfit didn't have too much joy in last year's competition, finishing bottom of their pool. They beat Northampton in their final game of the weekend to finish eleventh overall. Led once again by coach Ricky Petersen, they return this year chasing an improved effort later this month.

Drawn in Pool A alongside New York City 7s, Siberian outfit RC Enisei and the winners of next weekend's Premiership Rugby 7s Series Final, Western Province will have their work cut out.

Rose, 30, is the veteran of the group but there is experience elsewhere - captain Ruan Mostert, Danie Roux, Josh Bassingthwaighte and Armien Bailey each featured at Twickenham in 2013.

They will be without South African international sevens star Cheslin Kolbe, who recently missed out on a Commonwealth Games gold medal due to injury, but the 20-year-old is confident Western Province will go well in his absence.

"It is the opportunity of a lifetime, playing at Twickenham and competing with the best clubs from different countries," said Kolbe. "I think it is a great challenge for the boys and I hope everything goes well.

"There is a lot of talent out there but it is an opportunity that the boys have to use. I think this is the perfect time and tournament and platform for them to go out to Twickenham, to express themselves and most importantly to enjoy themselves on the field and off the field and meet new people.

"I am sure they will do well and wear the jersey with pride in Twickenham."

Western Province squad for World Club 7s: Ruan Mostert (captain), Earl Johnson, Danie Roux, Jason Kriel, Josh Bassingthwaighte, Armien Bailey, Anthony Taylor, Ashwill Peters, Frederick Muller, Errol Jaggers, Iewan Bartels, Earl Rose.
