Stade recall rules out Ollie Phillips from Sevens

England Sevens star Ollie Phillips has been released by the England management and will be returning to his club Stade Francais from from the England squad preparing for the London Sevens this weekend.

Ollie Phillips has been replaced by Oliver Lindsay-Hague of Harlequins.

Elite Rugby Director Rob Andrew said “Ollie Phillips has been recalled by his club Stade Francais.

“We are very disappointed with this decision as Ollie has been part of the England Sevens squad for the last couple of years and was named World Sevens player of the year last season.

“We have worked closely with Stade this season with regard to Ollie’s sevens commitments and have not selected Ollie during the season at Stade’s request.

“Ollie is very disappointed to miss our home tournament which is fast becoming one of the biggest events in the IRB Sevens Series.

“We will be asking the IRB to further consider the release of players for the IRB Series under Regulation 9.”
