Fire is in full preparation mode for the 4th leg of the Fiji Rugby Super 7's series this weekend despite losing some key players to the Fijian Drua and the National 7s extended squad.

Coach Akuila Nasi says they have lost Onisi Ratave and Vinaya Habosi who have been included in the Fijian Drua and Vuivuwa Naduvalu, Nasoni Tulavu and Tira Welagi are in the National 7s extended squad.

He says they have faced many challenges during their preparation because team members were focusing on training and work.

The team has been training for the last couple of weeks and is aiming to end on a high note in this last tournament.

He is thankful to the Fiji Rugby Union for their support in organizing the tournament that creates opportunities for local players eyeing a spot in the National 7s team.

He is urging their supporters and fellow firefighters to show their support this weekend.

Fire is pooled with Navy, Uluinakau and Wardens.

Series leaders Police Blue are in Pool A with Stallions, Wadigi Salvo and Police White.

Army, Eastern Saints, Dominion Brothers and Nawaka are in Pool C while Raiwasa Taveuni is in Pool D with Tabadamu, LAR Barbarians and Ratu Filise.

16 menโ€™s and 12 womenโ€™s teams will participate in the fourth leg of the Super Sevens Series this weekend.

The Menโ€™s Series Champions will be awarded the inaugural Super 7s Series trophy and $20,000, the second-placed team will get $10,000 while the third-placed team receives $5000.

The final leg of the Super 7s Series will be held on Friday and Saturday at the ANZ Stadium.
