9 players with links to Fiji are set to feature for the USA based STARS rugby 7s team at the McDonalds Fiji’s Coral Coast 7s.
They include former national 7s rep Pio Tuwai, Joeli Lutumailagi and Sainivalati Ramuwai.
Tuwai is well known for his offloading abilities, this makes him one of the most exciting player to watch while Lutumailagi will provide pace on the wing.
Team Director Liz Entwhistle says that they have settled well since arriving on Saturday.
She adds that while they are aware of the many challenges to come from local teams, the side have one aim and that is to win the tournament.
