Fiji to showcase it’s hosting potential at Oceania 7s

fijioceaniaThe Tournament Manager for the Oceania Sevens, Wayne Schuster, says everything is on track for the big kick off in Suva on Friday morning, with 13 teams competing in the men’s event and eight in the women’s.

Australia, New Zealand, Samoa and the host nation Fiji are expected to be the main title contenders, but for the other nations there are places at the World Series qualifying tournament in Hong Kong, and the World Cup in San Francisco at stake.

The whole event is being viewed as something of a trial run for Fiji in support of the FRU’s bid to host a leg of the World Sevens series, and Wayne Schuster says the leading nations are all bringing strong squads.
