The Vodafone Fiji sevens team holds an edge over other teams in its pool at the 2014 Dubai tournament.
Ben Ryan’s men will play against France, Brazil and Argentina.
Fiji has played France 40 times, winning on 37 occasions and losing thrice and the last meeting was in Japan last season, where the Fijians won 22-19.
Fiji and Brazil have only ever met once in the World Series, which was way back in 2002, where the national side won 27-5.
The Argentina team can prove to be a obstacle for the team, having played the Fijians 48 times and losing on 36, winning 11 and drawing one.
Fiji plays France in its opening match at 6.44pm on Friday, before meeting Brazil at 9.44pm.
The last pool match is against Argentina at 1.52am on Saturday.
You can watch the Dubai Sevens live on FBC TV from Friday.
