The Fiji Rugby Union yesterday named the Fijian Barbarians 7s team for the SUDAMERICA’S Rugby Sevens next month.

The tournament will be held in Uruguay and Chile and will feature teams from Argentina, USA, Canada, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay, Colombia and Fiji.

The tournament is scheduled to be played on January 6-7 in Uruguay and January 14-15 in Chile.

FRU chief executive John O’Connor said the tournament will be a good opportunity to further develop the players. O’Connor reminded the players to value the opportunity to represent the country and to go out there and prove themselves and uphold the reputation of Fiji in the 7s game.

“As preparations begin for the 2017 World  Sevens Series, which resumes in Wellington next month, this tournament will be a good opportunity to further develop the players in the code.

“It will also give them the chance to prove themselves and be in contention for the Vodafone Fijian 7s team.”

The side is expected to depart next week.
