UQ has named a 24-player squad for the four-round competition, which runs from 14 September to 27 October.
The squad also includes UQ students Terri-anne Egan, Katie Muscat, Jessee Santo, and Cassie Carberry.
Cramer said UQ’s team was full of enthusiasm and energy with the inclusion of some young faces.
“We are always looking to build and get better and improve,” Cramer said.
“We want to be competitive and we will be competitive.”
Team UQ head coach Reg Tayler said the University was building for the future with the new squad members.
“We are really excited with the team we have,” Tayler said.
“They are a young squad and we are looking to see how they go during the series.
“We have had a really good preparation so we are all ready to go and looking forward to seeing how we can perform.”
The series, now in its third year, will feature ten teams with The University of Western Australia and University of Technology Sydney entering for the first time.
Tayler said UQ was aiming to go one better in 2019 after finishing runners up to Griffith University last season.
“Griffith are the favourites on paper and have been for the past two years.
“This year they have the most amount of Australian-contracted players and will be the benchmark.
“Our young players are looking forward to the challenge of playing them.”
UQ will have the home advantage at the opening event of the competition, which will be held at the UQ Sport Athletics Centre from 14-15 September.
All Uni 7s matches will be broadcast live via Rugby.com.au’s social media channels.
