Fiji 7s coach Gareth Baber has highlighted that it will be up to the different rugby unions when they will allow the 7s players to take the field for their teams in the Skipper Cup Competition.

Baber says there are no guidelines given by him on when 7s players can exactly play.

Some players that are expected to feature for some provincial teams in the Skipper Cup are Meli Derenalagi, Alasio Naduva, Terio Tamani, Sevuloni Mocenacagi, Isoa Tabu and Livai Ikanikoda.
