FIJIANA coach Elenoa Kunatuba will be hunting for talented players at the Uprising Fiji International 7s tournament.
Kunatuba said the national team's preparation for the second last round of the IRB Women's Sevens World Series in March and the Rugby World Cup 7s in June would start next week.
Kunatuba said she would be looking out for potential players during the Uprising 7s to boost the competition level for a place in the national team.
She said they had identified a group of players who were being eyed to lead the national team's campaign at the Guangzhou 7s in China and RWC 7s in Russia.
"We already have a group of players along with those who won us the Asian 7s tournament," Kunatuba said. "But that doesn't mean we have stopped looking for more. There is always a chance for more players to make the initial squad because the more players we have for the trials, the better it is for us. The plan is to maintain the competition level for a place in the final team."
Kunatuba, who will be coaching the Sea Hawks team at the Uprising 7s, said the tournament would set a good platform for their build-up to what was a busy and exciting season for the national women's 7s team.
This year's Uprising 7s will see four women's teams competing.
