Fijiana Grouped In Pool B

The Telecom Fijiana side is grouped in Pool B of the World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series in Brazil on February 7-8.

The Iliesa Tanivula coached side is grouped alongside pool leaders Australia, China and hosts Brazil. Fiji forced England to extra time in a memorable plate final in Dubai.

France ran New Zealand close in the semi-final in Dubai and they meet again in Pool A, alongside USA and Spain. Pool C makes for some interesting clashes with Canada, England and Russia all set to do battle in Sao Paulo in February, along with South Africa.

With less than two years to the Olympics Games in Rio de Janeiro, rugby returns to Brazil on February 7-8 with round two of the women’s series kicking off in Sao Paulo. This season will see the top four teams qualify for the Rio Games in 2016, and as a result, the competition has already seen a step up in intensity, energy and skill levels.

All rounds of the 2014-2015season will be live streamed on worldrugby.org

Fiji takes on China in the first game of the tournament on February 8 at 1am.

The Fijiana side lost to England 12-19 in a closely contested plate final in Dubai and defeated USA 24-21 to make the top six.
