Australia Sevens star Henry Paterson is hungry to regain his spot in the starting side as he returns to the World Series in Vancouver.

Paterson will play in his first tournament of the season this weekend as the Australians build on back-to-back finals appearances.

His return comes at the perfect time after a slight calf injury to Maurice Longbottom, with the 26-year-old excited to be back with July’s Olympics hastily approaching.
