About the Team
Fiji heads to Brazil as the overall #1 seed in the rugby 7’s competition after winning the 2014/15 HSBC Sevens Series, the qualifying tournament with the top 4 teams earning a place in Rio. The Pacific island nation strengthened their claim as the top seed after repeating as HSBC Sevens Champions in 2015/16.
They are one of the best 7’s teams in the history of the sport also winning the Sevens Series in 2005/06, claiming the Rugby World Cup Sevens title twice (1997 and 2005), and holding a record 12 titles at the Hong Kong Sevens tournament.
Head coach Ben Ryan’s side will have the weight of a nation on their shoulders playing to win a first-ever medal.
