Former England 7s captain Rob Vickerman says the huge players in the Fiji Airways men’s national 7s team have a massive impact on the breakdowns.

While giving his expert view, Vickerman says Fiji have some players that are built like basketball players.

He says Fiji had a higher number of steals than any other team in the Toulouse 7s.

Fiji 7s coach Ben Gollings has included Kavekini Tabu in the squad for the London 7s.

Sevuloni Mocenacagi and Joseva Talacolo have been rested.

Fiji open their London 7s campaign against Wales at 10 tonight.

They will take on Spain at 1.06am tomorrow in their second pool match and play the USA at 4.35am tomorrow in the final pool match.

The Cup quarterfinals start at 10.20pm tomorrow, the Cup semi-finals will begin from 1.53am Monday and the Cup final will start at 4.58am Monday.
