The Vodafone Fijan 7s team took some time off their daily training routine sessions yesterday.

The day-off gave them an opportunity to visit the Hong Kong Football Club stadium and watch the 10s tournament, featuring former Fijian 7s player and coach, Waisale Serevi.

The club stadium was host to the first Hong Kong 7s tournament in 1976. In 1977, Fiji won its first Hong Kong 7s there.

In 1979 Fiji lost to South Korea there, the biggest shock loss Fiji has suffered in all the years of Hong Kong 7s.

The Hong Kong 7s starts this Friday. The Vodafone Fijians take on Japan on Friday at 11.45pm.

After six rounds of the 10-leg World Sevens Series the Vodafone Fijians have yet to win one tournament. Fiji are defending champions in Hong Kong.

The Vodafone Fijians are in third place with 100 points.

South Africa leads with 126 followed by England with 103.
