The Natasha Olson-Thorne captained Hong Kong’s side wants to tackle the best women teams in the country.

The team will take part in McDonald’s Fiji Coral Coast Sevens women competition which starts at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka on Thursday.

“We are really happy to be here again and it would be a great exposure up against teams playing different style of rugby which we play in Asia,” she said.

“We want to tackle the best teams in the country.”

The last year’s runner-up is the top seed in Pool F with Scion (USA), Fiji Airports Nadi Aviators and Hope RC.

“It is very important for us to keep our structure, system, focus and keep it simple,” she added.

“We played in the final last year and we hope to replicate that this year. We have a few survivors and four new players in the team too.”

The four new players include Maelle Picat, Sarah Lucas, Amy Pyle and Jessica Eden.

The team will be playing the qualifiers for the core team of the World Rugby Women Sevens Series during the Hong Kong 7s in April.

Pool E: Striders, Stars USA, Walkyries, and Fiji Airport Nadi Blazers.

Pool F:  Hong Kong, Scion (USA), Fiji Airports Nadi Aviators, Hope RC.

Pool G: Fijiana, Marist Seahawks, Lautoka Crusaders and Outrigger Knights.
