The Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team focus on their recov­ery this week as they pre­pare for the 2018 Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco on July 20-22.

Head Coach Gareth Baber told SUNsports yesterday he was yet to confirm his squad but confirmed that overseas based players Semi Radradra, Josua Tuisova, Leone Nakarawa and Semi Kunatani were in the squad.

“After Radradra’s game against Tonga this Saturday, he will join 7s camp. Tuisova will team after his wedding next week and possibly Nakarawa and Kunatani,” Baber said.

“We are still doing visa applica­tions so will confirm after that is done.”

Ambassador thanks team

The Fiji Airways men and Fijiana teams were hosted to an afternoon tea at the residence of the French Ambassador Sujiro Seam in Suva yesterday.

Ambassador Seam acknowledged the Fijian 7s team for their com­mitment and consistency at the 2017/2018 World Sevens Series.

“My expectation was for Fiji to win the Paris 7s and the World Sev­ens Series title but I was shocked when they missed out, a little bit disappointed.

“ But talking about the present, I want to thank you guys and con­gratulate you because throughout this season you performed well.

“It’s always a pleasure to wake up at 2am and 5am to watch you per­form on the world circuit.”
