Vodafone Fiji 7s team captain Osea Kolinisau says the team is still on a rebuilding face with some new players in the squad.
Kolinisau says despite losing the Cup quarter-final, his team did manage to put things together to finish fifth in Cape Town.
“We are still learning. We some new players in the team and also a new coach. The boys played well last weekend in Dubai and this weekend too, after losing to England and won two matches to finish fifth. It’s not easy to play after losing out from the Cup competition but I am proud of the team.”
Fiji finished 5th in Cape Town defeating Kenya 33-21 in the fifth place playoff after losing to England 31-26 in the Cup quarter-final.
The side has been second seeded in Pool B with Australia, Japan and runner up of the Cape Town tournament, South Africa at Wellington 7s.
Pool A will have England with Kenya, Argentina and a 16th team.
Pool C has New Zealand, USA, France and Samoa while Pool D has Scotland, Wales, Russia and Canada.
The Wellington 7s will be played on the 28th and 29th of next month.
