January 25, 2018 4:18 pm
The Fiji Airways National Sevens team will aim for their sixth Australian 7s title when they kick off their campaign today in the Sydney tournament.
Fiji won the first Brisbane 7s tournament in the year 2000, Adelaide 7s in 2007, and three times in the Gold Coast 7s.
The Fiji team is focused on winning their first Sydney title this weekend.
Team coach Gareth Baber says his boys have the potential to win if they play according to their natural game pattern.
“When we got the ball in our hand, we are able to create that space and there are not many teams that can match us because they have strategic game plans.”
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 today.
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.
