Speaking to FBC Sports, Longbottom says when it comes to playing Fiji, the strategy is simple.


“The Fijians are a lot bigger than I am so, as long as I’m running away from them and staying away from them, that’s the key. If they don’t get their hands on me then, that’s a win for me.”

Longbottom is one of the four experienced players in the squad with eight new faces to debut.

Australia starts its Dubai 7s campaign against Canada at 7pm today.
