Australia will boast three Super Rugby players at the upcoming sevens World Cup in Russia.

The Australian Rugby Union is stepping up its preparations for the 2016 Rio Olympics by including the Queensland Reds winger Luke Morahan and the New South Wales Waratahs duo Bernard Foley and Matt Lucas in their 12-man squad for the tournament in Moscow on June 28th to the 30th.

With the addition of sevens to the Olympic programme for the Rio de Janeiro Games, many countries have now begun treating the code seriously.
