The Vodafone Fijian 7s team have been drawn with Australia in Pool C of the Oktoberfest 7s which is from September 29-30 at Olympic Stadium in Munich, Germany.

Their other opponents are Chile and Ireland.

The Fijians, last year’s World Series bronze medallists, will provide the main threat to the Australians to finishing top of the pool.

Chile only took part in the Americas’ World Series events in 2016/17, gaining one point in Las Vegas and five in Vancouver, while Ireland failed to compete in any of the 10 events. Pool A will feature Olympic bronze medallists and last year’s World Series champions South Africa, alongside France, Portugal and Spain, while pool B includes the hosts Germany, silver medallists England, and Argentina and Uganda.
