Fijiana pooled with sevens top gun New Zealand, the Cook Islands and Tonga for next month’s Oceania Women’s Sevens Championship in Lautoka.
National women’s rugby coach, Elenoa Kunatuba says it’s the best draw they could hope for.
“Our first game is against the Cook Islands and they may have some NZ-based players then we play Tonga and the hardest is against NZ in the last match for Day One., It going to be tough but knowing the girls, we will give it our best shot and give the answer after the final whistle at Churchill Park.”
Australia, Samoa, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands make up Pool A.
The Aussies and New Zealand are through to the Sevens Rugby World Cup next year.
Fiji must become the top pick from the remaining six, in order to qualify for the regional qualifier in India, in October.
