Sport: Fiji sevens team to get pick of players for World Cup

10:58 am on 17 May 2013

The Flying Fijians rugby coach, Inoke Male, says the sevens team will get the first port of call on players ahead of their World Cup in Moscow next month.

Fiji open their Pacific Nations Cup campaign against Japan in just over a fortnight, with the squad for that tournament due to be named on Saturday.

Male says everything is pretty much finalised but he will speak with sevens coach Alivereti Dere first to ensure they're on the same wavelength.

"We are trying to give the sevens the first choice over players he needs to take to the World Cup. After that we will finalise our teams for the coming tournament."
