Fiji 7s coach Gareth Baber is likely to retain his core players for the Las Vegas and Vancouver tournaments next month.
If the players are carrying no major injuries then Baber is expected to name skipper Kalione Nasoko, Sevuloni Mocenacagi, Mesulame Kunavula and Paula Dranisinukula in the forwards.
Baber is likely to weigh his options on Terio Tamani and Napolioni Ratu who have been fighting for a spot in the final squad.
Speedsters Alasio Naduva and Aminiasi Tuimaba together with Jerry Tuwai plus Waisea Nacuqu will be added in the final list.
The 13-member squad will be named later today.
Meanwhile, Fiji faces Scotland in its opening match at 11.22am next Saturday, then battles Wales at 2.23pm before meeting Australia at 7.52am next Sunday in its last pool match.
