The Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s side will have a very good chance of winning the World 7s Series if they win the remaining 2 tournaments in London and Los Angeles.

For that to happen, Fiji will also hope that South Africa does not make it to the later stages of the cup competition in both tournaments.

According to the new rules, only the best 7 from 9 results will count towards the final Series position following the introduction of a unique scoring system.

Fiji did not play in the Malaga and Seville 7s tournaments this year after an outbreak of COVID cases in camp while the side was still in Fiji.

They are currently 5th in the Series standings with 87 points while Argentina is first with 118 points, South Africa is second, Australia is third and Ireland is fourth.

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

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

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