The Fiji Rugby Union is aware of the concerns raised by the fans following the dismal performance displayed by the Fiji Airways men’s 7s team in Sydney last weekend.
The side finished sixth in the tournament and has slipped to fifth place on the World Rugby Sevens Series standings.
Chief Executive, John O’Connor says they hope the national team will bounce back in Hamilton this weekend.
