Despite the Fiji Airways Men’s 7s title drought after 19 tournaments in the World Series, Samoan legend Brian Lima believes Fiji is still the best team.

The man dubbed as ‘The Chiropractor’ made the comments following a scrimmage with Fiji.

Lima, who was recently inducted with Waisale Serevi into the Pasifika Hall of Fame, says he wanted his new players to have a feel of what it’s like to play with the World’s best before they make their debut on Friday.

Lima says Samoa is blessed that Kolinisau and Satala said yes to their scrimmage request.,

‘It’s good that we run against the best team in the world, there’s a lot of things to work on before the kick-off on Friday and thanks to Osea for allowing us to play against them, the Fiji team is looking sharp today and hopefully will keep that momentum and have a good start on Friday’.
