Members of the Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s team have officially received their 2020 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series Bronze medals after finishing third with 83 points in the 2020 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.

Coach Gareth Baber says finishing in third place, puts the team in a position to reflect on what they've achieved and what needs to be done to reach the goal ahead of them.

He says they are not far away from where they need to be.

Baber says their drive and ambition is to get better every chance they get.

The HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series Award winners will be announced on 21 September.

National 7s team playmaker Napolioni Bolaca has been nominated for the Cigna Pressure Play Award which looks at the moment a player or a team has applied pressure on the opposition to score a try, based on the number of passes, defenders beaten and offloads.

Bolaca was nominated for his Cup final try against South Africa in the Sydney 7s.
