They are the rugby sevens version of the Dream Team, and with stars like Semi Radradra on deck, Fiji have a "98 per cent chance" of winning the World Cup in San Francisco this weekend.

That's the opinion of Fiji sevens legend Waisale Serevi who told RUGBY.com.au he was one of many amazed by the quality of the squad named by Fiji coach Gareth Baber this week.

After impressing with his form in the London Sevens tournament where he was named player of the final, Radradra was included as one of four European‑based Fijian stars in the squad, along with Josua Tuisova, Leone Nakarawa and Semi Kunatani.

They were added to a team already bristling with sevens brilliance, including captain Jerry Tuwai, Amenoni Nasilasila and Jasa Veremalua.

The 2017‑18 rookie of the year Eroni Sau couldn't even crack a spot in the Fijian World Cup squad.

Serevi highlighted former NRL star Radradra as the Fijian player to watch in San Francisco, amazed at the ease with which he has slipped into the squad after stints with the Parramatta Eels, Toulon and a clash against England with the Barbarians.

Serevi commended coach Gareth Baber in guiding Fiji to an unprecedented five tournament wins and said a World Cup would cap an already impressive year.
