There are no major surprises in either squad, with Tim Walsh’s World Series leading women’s side starting favourites on home soil for the tournament kicking off on April 13.
Andy Friend’s men are fourth on the World Series standings and both coaches have had the luxury of naming the same squads that won the Sydney Sevens tournament in February.
“We’re a really process driven team so we know that we’ve prepared well and we’re ready to walk off the field after the last game without any regret,” Walsh said.
“It’s always a privilege to play at home and something that we really enjoy but in reality, it’s the same size rugby field against the same number of players.
“The real difference is after the fulltime whistle.”

The Aussie women have been drawn in Pool B with Fiji, Wales and England while the men will meet Samoa, England and Jamaica in Pool B.
“We targeted three major tournaments at the start of the season and the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast was one of those,” Friend said.
“We have been in some good form this season so far but I know we still have room to grow with just under a month left before the Games.
“In this squad I think we have an extremely talented group of players with the right mix of youth and experience so I’m looking forward to seeing this team perform to the best of their potential on the Gold Coast.”
