The Fiji Airways Fijiana team will acclimatise in Denver, Colorado in the United States for 16 days before the Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco next month.

Coach Iliesa Tanivula and the team arrived at Nadi International Airport yesterday after finishing 9th in the Women Seven Series with 31 points in Paris over the weekend.

“We didn’t start well in Dubai and Sydney but we sort of come back at the end,”Tanivula said.

“It’s really hard to close the gap but we played the quarterfinals in the last four tournaments which was good and straight forward. We really need to start well from Dubai and roll on from there.

“Players need to be fit to compete at the series and some of them have been consistent.

“Five of the players were injured which was out of my control and maybe we will need to make changes before the RWCS.

“We will spend two weeks in Fiji, then head to 16 days training in Denver before the RWCS.”   -Edited by  Osea  Bola
