The Fiji Airways Fijian 7s will take on de­fending Sydney 7s champions Australia today in the first Cup quarterfinal at the Spotless Stadium, Australia.

The Fijians topped Pool A after beating Sa­moa 22-12 last night while Australia edged past South Africa 29-21 to keep their title defence alive.

Fijian 7s winger Alasio Naduva said they were grateful to the Fijian supporters for backing them up. “Thank you for your prayers as the Almighty has given us the endurance and strength as we God’s power to win,“ he said.

Barring an upset the Fijian 7s team would meet New Zealand in the Cup semifinals. The Kiwis have been in top form scoring big wins against Scotland and Spain.

The Fijians face Australia at 1.16pm and New Zealand take on France at 1.38pm. Series champions South Africa meet England at 2pm and USA tackle Spain at 2.22pm.
