A new challenge awaits the Fiji Airways Men’s 7s side today especially for the 10 new players who are in the final 13 member squad this week.
During the first Dubai 7s leg there was no crowd, however, that’s not going to be the case for the second tournament which starts today.
It will be the first time for our new players to be greeted by thousands of screaming fans when they run out today but Interim Head Coach, Saiasi Fuli says their goal remains the same.
“This is a tournament where fans will be coming in, the excitement and people will be cheering, it’s a challenge for them but we remain unified as a team and collectively agree on the same goal that we need to produce results and win games this weekend”.
