The Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s will be spurred by extra motivation at the Langford 7s in Canada this weekend as they fight to remain in the top 10 of the HSBC Women’s World Sevens Series.
The Fijian 7s side currently sits in 10th place of the standing with 13 points, three ahead of bottom-placed China who is likely to be relegated and replaced by Brazil next season.
Fijiana will need to reach the quarter-final this weekend to cement its place as a core team next season.
Coach Saiasi Fuli says they will need to grab six points in the next two tournaments in Canada and France in order to be in the top tier.
The Fijiana 7s is pooled with the USA, Spain, and France for the Langford 7s in Canada.
They play France at 6.50am on Sunday before meeting France at 9.55am.
Their final pool match is at 12.15pm on Sunday.
