Team GB will play alongside Olympic bronze medallists Fiji, Canada, Ireland and Russia in one of two pools of five teams.

Head coach Scott Forrest said: “There’s a nice consistency to the squad off the back of Canada which helps us in terms of building on the performances we had in Vancouver and Edmonton

“This group of players have created a really open and honest culture, it’s been exciting to see that grow over the last month and it’s great to be able to take that to Dubai.

“It’s been an unbelievable experience since coming together at the start of the year.
