Changes to Fijiana 7s qualifier schedule

Late withdrawal by Uzbekistan has prompted changes to the Fijiana women’s rugby team’s Asian Rugby World Cup 7s qualifiers draws with the Elenoa Kunatuba-coached side now scheduled to play their first game against Sri Lanka at 3.40pm (Fiji Time) today.

They play their second game against South Korea (6pm) before playing Chinese Taipei (8.20pm) in their final pool game.

Fiji Rugby Union CEO Manasa Baravilala called up the team at the camp in Pune, India this morning to convey their best wishes  for the first day of competition.

Jersey presentation was held last night with the team coach leading the team in a devotion in one of their hotel’s Banquet room which was decorated with the Fiji flag.

Fiji’s High Commissioner to India, Yogesh Karan did not attend the jersey presentation but relayed his message of good wishes to the team via Mereseini Marau, a Fijian journalist studying in India.

In his message, Karan said, “Fiji is known as the champions here in India and that is what he has been advocating here in India before our arrivals. Play well and do not let your country down.”
