Meli Derenalagi, Aminiasi Tuimaba and Vilimoni Botitu will be hoping to continue their fine form from last season as we head into the new HSBC 7s Series from next month. 

The Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s trio were also nominated for the Rookie of the Year Award last season which was eventually won by Derenalagi while Botitu was the winner of DHL Rugby Impact Player Award.

Tuimaba was Fiji’s highest try scorer with 46 tries, Botitu scored 26 tries while Derenalagi scored 17 tries. 

The three together with World 7s Series Player of the Year, Jerry Tuwai, Alasio Naduva, Paula Dranisinukula and Sevuloni Mocenacagi will play a key role as Fiji aims to defend the 7s series title and defend the Olympic Gold medal in Tokyo next year. 

Meanwhile, Fiji is pooled with France, Argentina and Japan for the Dubai 7s which starts from on the 6th of next month.
