The Vodafone Fijian 7s team are in a tricky pool of the Hong Kong 7s tournament which is from April 8-10.

The 2015/16 World Sevens Series leaders are in Pool D along with Wales, Canada and Korea. According to World Rugby, this is an interesting pool as Fiji and Wales had played in the final of the 2013 Hong Kong 7s.

Another interesting factor is the inclusion of Korea who once scored an upset 10-7 win over the national sevens team in the Cup quarterfinal of the 1977 Hong Kong tournament.

 

WHO PLAYS WHO in Hong Kong?

 Pool A: New Zealand, Samoa, France, Kenya

 Pool B: South Africa, Scotland, England, Russia

 Pool C: Australia, USA, Argentina, Portugal

 Pool D: Fiji, Wales, Canada, Korea
