Fiji Airways Men’s National 7's team coach, Gareth Baber says they have not had many problems with injuries as the Paris 7s kicks off in a few hours time.

Baber says Eroni Sau has managed to recover from his shoulder injury.

Baber has named his final 13 member squad to play at the Paris 7s.

The Fiji 7s team just needs a third place finish at the Paris 7s this weekend to win the 2017/2018 World Sevens Series.

Fiji is in first place with 167 points and a third place finish will earn them 17 points and will take their total tally to 184.
