The Tongan 7s team aim to reap maximum benefits from the 2018 Oceania Sevens Championship which starts at the ANZ Stadium tomorrow.

Team captain Winitana Fotofili said despite the tournament being the first for most of the players, they are ready for the battle.

“The long bus ride from Nadi was quiet exhausting but the hospitality from the Fijians was overwhelming,” Fotofili said.

“For most of the boys in the team including me, this will be our first ever Oceania Sevens tournament and we looking forward to making a mark for ourselves.

“We are in a tough pool with Samoa, Tuvalu and Niue and we hope to knock off two teams to ensure a spot in the quarterfinals.

“The boys are all very excited to get on the field and hope to deliver their best performance.”
