The Digicel Fiji 7s rugby side will have to dig deep if it is to make the cup quarter-finals at the South Africa tournament this weekend.
Being pooled with New Zealand, England and Scotland, it will not be easy for the team and the head-to-head statistics put the teams on equal par.
Fiji has played New Zealand 68 times, and won 29 times and the very latest meeting was in Gold Coast, where the Fijians won 32-14 in the final.
England has met Fiji 51 times and have won 24 times and the last meeting was in the London 7s this year where the national side won 21-14.
Fiji and Scotland have met 27 times and the Fijian sevens have won 23 times.
The two met last weekend in Dubai, where Fiji won 22-14.
Meanwhile, Fiji plays England in its first pool match at 10.22 pm on Saturday before battling Scotland at 1.28am on Sunday.
The final pool match is against the All Blacks Sevens at 5.52am.
