The Telecom Fijiana will hand two players their World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series debuts in Clermont-Ferrand in France for the series finale.

Ebony Satala and Asena Roko will make their World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series debuts for Fijiana in this weekend’s final round.

Fijiana coach Iliesa Tanivula has been preparing the team in the absence of coaching director Chris Cracknell who is away with the men’s team looking to secure a second successive series crown.

Three players that did not travel to France are Litiana Naiqato, Lavenia Tinai and Timaima Tavisa. They are rested with niggling injuries to ensure they are fit for the build-up to the Rio Olympic Games in August.

Fijiana will face series leaders Australia, hosts France and Ireland in Pool C at the Stade Gabriel-Montpied.

Telecom Fijiana squad: Brittany Coates, Talica Vodo, Ebony Satala, Jiowana Sauto, Viniana Riwai, Merewai Cumu, Miriama Naiobasali, Asena Roko, Rebecca Tavo, Ana Maria Roqica, Luisa Basei, Rusila Nagasau.
