The Spain 7s team are here to prepare for the Hong Kong 7s and pre-Olympic qualifier for Rio.

The team arrived on Monday night and wasted no time as they headed straight to training at the Uprising Beach Resort ground on Tuesday.

Team member Ignacio Martin said they would be here for three weeks as they prepare for the Hong Kong 7s to try and win a spot for Rio.

The team would be playing in a few local tournaments like the West Coast 7s and the Waimanu 7s.

“This is part of our build-up to the Hong Kong 7s to get back to the series and compete against some of the big teams,” Martin said.

They will have training sessions with the Vodafone Fijian 7s team and the Daveta team. They are camping at the Uprising Beach Resort.
