Competition is heating up in the Fijiana camp as they prepare for the Oceania 7's this week in New Zealand.

Captain Rusila Nagasau says that they are using the next tournament as a build-up to the Commonwealth Games in England.

The Somosomo native and former ACS sprint queen, Laisani Moceisawana, was inspired by the Fijiana 7s bronze medal win in Tokyo last year to take up Rugby.

Moceisawana will be making her debut after she was named in the Fijiana Selection side for the Oceania 7’s this weekend.

Another player that is setting the bar really high is Nadi lass, Verenaisi Raicola who holds the record on the Yoyo test.

She says what motivates her is to set a good record is her friends and family, and its something that she will be remembered for.

The Fijiana 7's first match will be against Papua New Guinea at 12.06pm Friday while the Fijiana Development side will meet Australia Selection at 12.28pm the same day.
