Dubai Sevens II 2021/2022

HSBC Sevens
Coach - Saiasi Fuli
Captain - Josua Vakurunabili
record - 3-2
ranking - 9th

The second weekend of the Dubai Sevens. A young Fiji side welcomed back Terio Tamani into the side with Panapasa Qeruqeru rested this weekend.

The team struggled in their first two matches against France and Spain, losing both and ultimately not qualifying for the knockout stages. Instead they would finish 9th.

Although they started this tournament like they finished the previous tournament, with 2 losses, they vastly improved in their last three matches winning them convincingly.

A young, inexperienced side who are still finding their way and will be much better for the run.
