 Final squads announced for USA Sevens
Adam Thomas has recovered from injury to make the Wales squad for this weekend's USA Sevens in Las Vegas

The final squads of 12 have been declared by the 16 international coaches ahead of the USA Sevens in Las Vegas, round four of the HSBC Sevens World Series to be played across three days on 24-26 January.

Key men return for the defending champion Blitzbokke in Seabelo Senatla and Stephan Dippenaar, while Kenya welcome back Humphrey Kayange, England have Mike Ellery fit again and Wales welcome back their captain Adam Thomas. 

On the other side of the spectrum Series leaders New Zealand are missing Tomasi Cama and Australia's captain Ed Jenkins injured himself shortly before leaving their shores, so does not make Michael O'Connor's side

Here we summarise the key players either included or missing from across the 16 teams.
