Exeter Chiefs flanker Chris Cracknell has been called up the England sevens squad for the London sevens at Twickenham.

The former Pirates man is one of just two uncapped players picked in coach Ben Ryan's 12-man squad.

"I have a squad of line breakers and game winners and we have home advantage so we hope to finish the season on a big high," said Ryan.

Also in the squad is the Chiefs' England sevens regular Kevin Barrett.

England face Spain, France and South Africa in the pool matches on 24 May.

The results of those games will decide who they play in the knock-out stages.

Cracknell joined the Exeter Chiefs from west country rivals Cornish Pirates last month.
