July 16, 2016 5:48 pm
The best out of a bunch of great players have been selected to represent the Vodafone Fiji 7’s side at next month’s Rio Olympics.
Coach Ben Ryan says that he could not have asked for anything more during selection as he had a mammoth task of picking his final 13.
Prime Minister and Fiji Rugby Union President, Voreqe Bainimarama after announcing the 13 names last night reminded the players that now they have made the final team, it doesn’t get easy from here.
“Make no mistake, the rugby in Rio will be the most competitive you have ever played. Because to win Gold for your country is the greatest feat a team can achieve. And in Rio, Fiji will be the team to beat. If you don’t bring the intensity, if you don’t bring the desire to win – your opposition will.”
Fiji takes on Brazil in its first match at 4.30am on 10th of August, they will then face Argentina at 9.30am and plays USA at 4.30am on the 11th of August.
The medal quarterfinal will be held from 8am, with medal semi-final starting at 5.30am on 12 of August and Gold final will be played at 10.30am.
You can watch all the matches live on FBC TV.
