The Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s team finished 11th at the Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco. Compared to what they achieved at the 2013 tournament where they won the Bowl, the side did not improve. However, there were a few standout performances from our players.

So, let’s take a look at 3 players who played well during the tournament;

  • MEREULA TOROOTI- I first met this nippy player at the US Embassy in Suva during her visa interview and was told by the official accompanying her that she was a player to watch.

Although coming in as a late replacement, Mereula played her heart out and scored a few spectacular tries to the crowd’s delight at the AT&T Park.

This Nasikawa lass along the Coral Coast is definitely a star in the making.

  • RAIJELI DAVEUA- The former Fijian Pearls defender scored in almost all the games they played in the tournament.

A powerful runner coupled with her deft footwork that time and again deceives the opposition. Also, has the potential to lead the team as well.

  • ANA MARIA ROQICA- Toiled hard as usual and never gave up.
