January 23, 2018 4:03 am
South Africa 7s veteran Kyle Brown has achieved many things on the World Sevens circuit but he has never played the Sydney Sevens.
Playing in Australia is not new, with appearances in Adelaide and the Gold Coast tournaments previously, but the weekend’s tournament, his 61st, will be a new experience.
In the process he could play his 300th game for South Africa but has downplayed that achievement.
South Africa are the defending champions in Sydney and will play Papua New Guinea in their opening game on Friday and meet Spain and England on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the Fiji Airways mens 7s side is pooled with New Zealand, Samoa and Russia.
They kick off their campaign against Samoa at 8.28pm on Friday.
The side then plays Russia at 5.09pm on Saturday before facing New Zealand at 8.42pm.
The Cup quarter-final kicks off at 12.28pm on Sunday, semi-final begins at 6.36pm and the final is schedule for 9.48pm.
You can watch the tournament live on FBC TV and catch the commentaries of Fiji’s game on Radio Fiji One.
