2021/2022 Dubai Sevens

HSBC Sevens Series
Coach - Saiasi Fuli
Captain - Josua Vakurunabili
record - 4-2
ranking - 4th

This was the first tournament after the resumption of the HSBC Sevens Series following the Tokyo Olympics and the departure of Gareth Baber.

11 players made their debuts with only captain Josua Vakurunabili and Waisea Nacuqu the only players to have Sevens Series experience.

Coach Saiasi Fuli takes charge at his first international tournament for the Men’s team.

All things considered the team did extremely well. We got to see some exciting new talent. Kaminieli Rasaku, Joseva Talacolo and Iowane Teba were probably the best out of the new comers. Rasaku looks ready for 15’s. He has size, skill and is a classy player. Talacolo had the most offloads in the competition and was ranked 2nd on the DHL Impact player rankings.
Teba was outstanding and a real finisher but still looks on the lighter side and will no doubt put on a few kg’s over the next couple seasons.

Skipper Josua Vakurunabili led well from the front. His yellow card was the only card given to our players throughout the tournament which is a real positive.
