Olympic gold medalists Napolioni Bolaca and Semi Kunatani.

Fiji Airways Men’s 7s coach Ben Gollings says the inclusion of Olympic gold medalist Napolioni Bolaca and Semi Kunatani will add more firepower and experience to the team.

Gollings says he wants to see Bolaca play and he’s a great addition to the squad.

He says Kunatani returns to the World stage after a lapse of 5 years.

He adds the “Beast” is expected to add more firepower and experience to the forward pack which consists of Josua Vakurinabili, Joseva Talacolo, Tevita Daugunu, Elia Canakaivata and Jerry Matana.

Coach says Kunatani is great around the players and provides good leadership.

Fiji meets Kenya at 12.34am Saturday, they take on Wales at 8.33am Saturday and then play France at 12.34am Sunday.

The men’s quarterfinals will start at 4.04am Sunday, the semifinals will begin at 12.14am next Monday and the final will be played at 4.26am on the same day.
