Baber has selected the squad he believes will be best suited to the conditions and
unique format of the Rugby World Cup competition.
With so much class across all areas of the field, the decision on who to take was
not an easy one.
The Head Coach has praised his squad for their efforts and application to the
preparation camp where all players put forward a strong case for selection
through their energy, intensity and determination to contribute to the team.
The Fiji Airways Men’s 7s will travel to San Francisco from Utah on Monday 16th
July before commencing their Rugby World Cup 7s campaign on Friday 20th July
against the winner of a qualifying match between Japan and Uruguay.
