The Vodafone Fiji 7s team aims to get even against Australia at the Wellington 7s on Friday.

Team  captain Osea Kolinisau made the comment before the team departed yesterday.

The Fijians lost to Australia during the HSBC World Rugby Series in Dubai and South Africa and will play the Aussies at 5.54pm, Wales at 2.58pm and Portugal at 12.03pm on Friday.

“We are looking at stopping Australia as they shut us out in Dubai and South Africa,” Kolinisau said.

“We’ve prepared well and the boys are geared up for the tournament. We need to communicate well on the field and try to win the title this weekend.”

Fiji is in second spot of the HSBC Sevens World Series table behind leaders South Africa and has never won the title since 2010 at the Caketin.

“We’ve not played South Africa this season and we are looking forward to playing them in New Zealand,”Kolinisau said.

“If we do meet, I’m sure it will bring the best from all of us”
