Fiji grouped with finalists in Dubai

The Digicel Fiji 7s team has been grouped with Kenya, Spain, and Scotland for the next round of the 2012/2013 HSBC 7s World Series in Dubai later next month.

Kenya lost to South Africa in the 3/4th playoffs of the Gold Coast 7s, Spain beat England to win the Bowl and Scotland oust the US to win the Shield.

Having failed to reach the Cup quarter finals in Australia, defending Dubai champions England face a tough task with pool matches against South Africa and Samoa as well as Portugal.
