The Fiji Airways 7s extended players will spend time this week familiarizing themselves with conditions and atmosphere they will expect in Las Vegas.
Head Coach Gareth Baber says they will be training a bit more under lights mostly in the evening at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka since they will be playing in the night in Las Vegas and Vancouver.
“This week we’ll be training a bit more under lights which is important because in Vegas and in Vancouver you play into the night, so it’s important to get some familiarization with that before we head off.”
He says players will continue to train at Lawaqa till Wednesday where they will then go on a short leave to spend time with families before jetting off for the US on Friday.
Baber is expecyed to name the final 13-member squad on Thursday for the Las Vegas tournament.
Fiji faces Scotland in its opening match at 11.22am next Saturday, and will then battles Wales at 2.23pm before meeting Australia at 7.52am next Sunday in its last pool match.
