Williams Out, Wallace-Sims In For Eagles 7s
Kevon Williams has been forced to withdraw from the Eagles upcoming trip to New Zealand and Australia with an injury. He has been replaced on the roster by Connor Wallace-Sims who will make his Eagles 7s debut. Williams was going to give the Eagles a third lightening quick option along with Carlin Isles and Perry Baker. That combination is going to have to wait.
Wallace-Sims has been a very, very steady player for the Northeast Academy and Old Blue over the last few years. He's going to be able to come in and be a good contributor to the team over the two legs. He finished second in the voting for the TIAR Award for Club 7s Player of the Year.
