2018/2019 Rookie of the Year nominee, Aminiasi Tuimaba says he is ready for another shot at the Dubai 7s title which they did not defend last season.

Tuimaba says that Coach Gareth Baber has chosen a good team and he believes that each player who has been chosen can do the job.

This will be Tuimaba’s second HSBC World 7s Series.

He made his debut in last year’s Dubai 7s.

Fiji’s first pool match is against Japan at 4.02am this Friday, they will take on Argentina in their second pool match at 10.04pm the same night and they will face France in their last match at 4.02am on Saturday.

The quarterfinals will be held at 8.14pm this Saturday, the semifinals will be at 12am Sunday while the final will be at 4.02am this Sunday.

Barring any upsets, Fiji is likely to meet South Africa, England or Kenya in the quarter-final, they can face South Africa or France in the semi-final and is likely to meet New Zealand or the USA in the final of the Dubai 7s.
