Navy to feature in last leg of Super 7s

Navy is the 16th team to feature at the last leg of the Super 7s Series which will be held on the 12th and 13th of November at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

Fiji Rugby Union chief executive John O’Connor said the Series gave players the much needed game time in preparation leading to the Oceania 7s and Tokyo Olympics.

“We have planned for the last leg to give our players the necessary game time before the Dubai 7s which will be held on the 26th and 27th of November 2021,” O'Connor highlighted.

“All the core teams which were part of the past three legs have been included.”

The 16 men’s teams have been divided into the following 4 Pools and the top four finishers during the third leg in Savusavu take charge of each Pool.

Pool A- Police Blue, Stallions, Wadigi Salvo

Pool B- Wardens, fire, Uluinakau, Navy

Pool C- Army, Eastern Saints, Dominion brothers, Namaka

Pool D- Tabadamu, LAR Barbarians, Raiwasa Taveuni, Ratu Felise 

O’Connor added that 12 women’s teams have been included in the last leg and divided into four Pools.

Pool A- Mt Masad, Striders, ACS Old Girls

Pool B- Yasawa, Savusavu, Army

Pool C- Lautoka, Valkyries, Police

Pool D- Seahawks, Waitui Waidroka, Fire Warden

O’Connor added that players that are part of the Fiji Men’s extended squad will feature for their own clubs during the final leg of the Super 7s Series.
 
Those players and officials that are fully vaccinated will only be allowed to play.

The winner of the men’s and women’s category in the 4th leg will each be presented with the trophy.

The Men’s Series Champions will be awarded the inaugural Super 7s Series trophy and $20,000, the second-placed team will get $10,000 while the third-placed team receives $5000.

Police Blue is currently leading 66 points followed by LAR Barbarians with 45 points.
