2022 Toulouse Sevens

HSBC Sevens 2021/2022
Coach - Ben Gollings, Viliame Satala, Jerry Tuwai
Captain - Tevita Daugunu
record - 6-0
ranking - Gold Medallist

Head coach Ben Gollings brought back 3 big names in 2016 Olympic Gold Medallist Semi Kunatani, 2020 Gold Medallist and former Fijian Drua player Napolioni Bolaca and fan favourite Sevuloni Mocenacagi who currently play’s in France with Nevers in the Pro D2.

In a weird twist for Kunatani, Toulouse is also where his professional career started in 2015.

Also returning and playing their first tournaments since Dubai is Manueli Maisamoa and Filipe Sauturaga. Joseva Talacolo who was rested for the Vancouver leg also comes back into the side.

Review

It’s a star studded side that never really cleaned up the competition and the additions of Kunatani and Mocenacagi really added sting and accuracy in defence.
Napolioni Bolaca made the crucial play against the USA in the Quarters, making a last ditch tackle and pushing the winger out to ensure Fiji progressed to the Semi Final against Samoa.
The final against Ireland whilst not easy, was a fine performance.
