Eyeing Top Four

The Telecom Fijiana 7s team is determined to make its mark in Hong Kong in the IRB Women’s Sevens World Series Qualifier today.

The Iliesa Tanivula–coached team will play Argentina, Japan and Kenya in Pool B at Shek Kip Mei Sports Ground.

Of the 12 teams only four teams will secure a place in the 2014/2015 IRB Women’s Sevens World Series.

Failure to qualify for the World Series would mean the Fijiana would have to rely on invites and they would have to pursue a different route to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games.

Tanivula is optimistic that the team would qualify but admitted it required massive effort from his charges.

“This is my second time to take this team as the first time was in China.”he said.

“And from then  on until now, the girls have progressed.

“I have seen the changes and it is in the right direction.

“We have worked very hard in the last two weeks to improve our fitness and skill level and I’m pleased with the commitment and determination the players have shown,” Tanivula said.
