Admir Cejvanovic made his World Rugby Sevens debut at the Dubai Tournament in 2014, playing a crucial part in Canada claiming the Shield Final. In six events, Cejvanovic has scored three tries. A mobile back-row forward in fifteens rugby, Cejvanovic is perfectly suited to the prop position in the sevens game. The 25-year-old is strong with ball in hand and has a great deal of potential, with his 109kg frame not holding him back in terms of pace around the field. The former shot putter knows his way to the try-line through running either smart lines or using his brute force to go over the top of rival players. Cejvanovic appeared in five events during the 2014-15 season.
