Fijiana 7s Coach Saiasi Fuli

The top 4 women's 7s teams in the world have assembled here in Fiji to participate in the Fiji Airways Mini 7s International Tournament that will be held this Friday and Saturday at Albert Park.

The 4 teams are the Fiji Airways Fijiana, New Zealand, Australia and France women's teams while the USA women’s team will be arriving next week.

Fijiana 7s coach, Saiasi Fuli says this tournament is aimed to kick start their preparation towards the next season of rugby 7s.

Fuli says the tournament is an opportunity for their new players to expose their talents as new players have been selected from various competitions like the Raluve and Marama tournaments.

He says after the Toulouse 7s, their players have recovered well and are focused on getting a spot in the national squad.

Meanwhile, New Zealand women’s 7s head coach, Cory Sweeney says they are fortunate to be invited to this tournament to prepare themselves for the next season that will be starting soon.

The Black Ferns coach says after taking part in the Toulouse 7s, they were looking for opportunities that could lead to their preparations as they focus on the Hong Kong 7s and the next Olympics.

USA will also join the top 4 teams next week to participate in the 2nd round of the Mini 7s that is organized by the Fiji Rugby Union and the Fijiana 7s team officials.
