NO scrimmaging sessions have been planned for the Digicel 7s team ahead of the Wellington 7s kick off on Friday.

The national 7s team departed for New Zealand yesterday in their quest to win their fourth Wellington 7s title.

Fiji won the inaugural tournament in 2000 beating the hosts 24-14 in the final. The national side beat South Africa 27-22 in the 2006 final while in 2010 final Fiji downed Samoa 19-14.

Team manager Semi Rogoyawa said the players were hosted by the Fijian community in Wellington last night.

"Logistic wise everything has been sorted out," Rogoyawa said.

"There is not much of a stopover in Auckland. There will be a pool recovery session upon arrival in Wellington.

"As for the players diet, we have sent our request to the New Zealand Rugby Union. We will not have any scrimmaging session."

"The boys will only be brushing up on their combinations and will go straight to the pool games fresh. We have the experienced players who were left out in Dubai and South Africa and hope to perform better."
