Fiji Airways Men’s National Sevens side today held scrimmage sessions with the Australian 7s team and National Fire Authority sevens side at Albert Park.
Australian 7s Coach Tim Walsh says his side is grateful for the opportunity to play warm-up matches against the defending Oceania 7s champions.
Walsh adds that Fiji plays brilliant rugby which challenges his players to compete with.
Walsh says that the team is using these games as a buildup session towards the Oceania 7s and HSBC World 7s Series.
“We have been working on an offseason and working on things from last year so we are sort of putting that into practice. When you are going to play Fiji, you will always get physicality so you just have to be on your game and constanly be able to adapt to the situation”
The Oceania 7s tournament kicks off on the 7th and 8th of next month.
Fiji is pooled with New Zealand, Japan, New Caledonia and Niue.
