Three brothers named in Fiji 7s squad for Dubai

Three brothers have been named in the Fiji Airways Fiji 7s squad for the opening round of the 2019-2020 HSBC World Sevens Series.

Sevuloni Mocenacagi, Isoa Tabu and Kavekini Tabu are named in the fourteen men squad by coach Gareth Baber for the Dubai and Cape Town 7’s tournaments.

The three brothers officially played together for the first time in the national colours against Niue at the Oceania 7s earlier this month.

Kavekini Tabu earned his debut inclusion after impressing Baber and the coaching staff.

Baber says Tabu will add the much-needed firepower to the team.

The Fiji 7s coach intends to keep the majority of his 2019 Series winning combination together enabling them to strengthen their game.

Dubai was also the debut tournament for Aminiasi Tuimaba, Vilimoni Botitu and Ratu Meli Derenelagi who now head into their second HSBC World Sevens Series as established names on the circuit.

Paula Dranisinikula will Captain the side as he returns to Dubai after missing the fixture in 2019 with a fractured leg.

The Dubai 7s will run from the 6th to the 8th at The Sevens Stadium.

The Fijian 7s are pooled with France, Argentina and Japan.

They meet Japan in their opening match at 4.02pm on the 6th of December then face Argentina at 10.04pm and France at 4.02am the following day.
