THE Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s team is undaunted about their pool which includes Canada, France and Spain in the Women’s HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series Dubai 7s tournament.

Fijiana coach Alifereti Doviverata said that all pools were tough and they would look to a good challenge with the teams in their pool. But the Fijiana also have Spain in their pool after last meeting them in the Glendale 7s last October.

At the Glendale 7s Challenge Trophy final Spain beat Fijiana 20-14.

“The team has had a good preparation this week,” Doviverata said.

“The players are in high spirits and all looking forward to the two-day tournament. We are aiming for a top two finish after the first day.

“We know it will not be easy as we are seeded last in our pool. “We have our captains run this morning (yesterday) before our first match at 12:20pm tomorrow (today).” “We have played these teams at the first tournament in Glendale and we have a fair idea of what we are up against.”

The Fijiana will play France in their first game tonight at 9.22pm, followed by Canada at 11.56pm and their last match against Spain at 2.53am on Friday morning.
