Test For Fijiana

The Telecom Fijiana team will need to step up the second last tournament of the Women Sevens Series which starts in Langford, Canada tomorrow.

The team flew out of country on Sunday and play Ireland at 6.14am tomorrow, Spain at 8.58am and Australia at 12.04pm.

The Iliesa Tanivula –coached side achieved their best result in round four of the Women Sevens Series in Kitakyushu, Japan last month losing narrowly in the playoff for third place to the Olympic champions Australia 17-15.

The game was decided at the death with a last minute try to Chole Dalton, denying the Pacific islanders their first win in 15 meetings and their best-ever placing on the world series

The side reached their first Cup semifinal after defeating United States of America 26-19. But their quest to winning their first ever final was doused spirited and clinical New Zealand outfit winning 21-0 in the semifinal.

This is a perfect opportunity for the Ana Maria Roqica-captained team to create history by beating Trans-Taman powerhouses New Zealand and Australia.

The islanders remain fourth in the standings and they need to maintain their grip on the ladder to strengthen their quest to qualify for Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 in San Francisco through the series.

The final tournament the Women Sevens Series will be held in Clermont, France next month.
