Australia will welcome back Olympic gold medallists Ellia Green and Evania Pelite for next week's Sydney Rugby Sevens.

The duo did not travel to Dubai for the first leg of the 2017 World Series last month, where the side finished runners-up to New Zealand.

The tournament at Allianz Stadium on February 3-5 will be Australia's homecoming after being crowned Olympic champions in Rio last year.
