It ain’t over till it’s over. Looks like there is hope for Ben Gollins and his mighty warriors The Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s team is still in the hunt to win the World 7s Series.
This is following a rule change by World Rugby. To ensure fairness in this COVID-19 affected year, only the best 7 from 9 results will count towards the final Series position following the introduction of a unique scoring system.
Fiji did not play in the Malaga and Seville 7s tournaments this year after an outbreak of COVID cases in camp while the side was still in Fiji.
They are currently 5th in the Series standings with 87 points while Argentina is first with 118 points, South Africa is second, Australia is third and Ireland is fourth.
However, all the sides above Fiji have played in all the tournaments so far.
There are 2 more tournaments to play in the Series.
Fiji opens their London 7s campaign against Wales at 10 pm Saturday.
They will take on Spain at 1.06 am Sunday in their second pool match and play the USA at 4.35 am Sunday in the final pool match.
The Cup quarterfinals start at 10.20 pm Sunday, the Cup semi-finals will begin from 1.53 am Monday and the Cup final will start at 4.58 am Monday.
This will come down to the wire as the top four teams will be bringing the fight…….Hope tiko Fiji.
