THE 12-member Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s team departed the country for two weeks high altitude training in Colorado before heading to the Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco.

Head coach Iliesa Tanivula has retained five surviving members from the 2013 world cup.

The five players are Rusila Nagasau, Asinate Savu, Viniana Riwai, Pricilla Siata and Luisa Tisolo.

Tanivula said the high altitude training in Colorado would best prepare the team for the world cup.

The side will face Spain in their do-or-die pool game as the winner is likely to face Australia in the quarter-final.

Team:

Ana Maria Roqica (captain), Rusila Nagasau, Asinate Savu, Viniana Riwai, Pricilla Siata, Luisa Tuisolo, Miriama Naiobasali, Mereula Toroki, Rejieli Daveua, Ana Maria Naimasi, Tima Ravisa, Merewai Cumu.
