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.
