THE Nabua 7s team was the first international team to arrive in Australia for the Central Coast 7s tournament that would be played this weekend.
The Solomone Ravono-coached side reached Australia on Wednesday and had been training there ever since.
The side reached the semi-finals of the tournament last year where they lost to Tokatoka Westfield Barbarians.
Nabua Rugby Union executive Elemaca Ravulo said the side was made of young players whose ages range between 20 and 26.
"This is a very young side that will participate in the tournament and it's the first international competition for most of the boys," he said.
"Our main aim is to expose these boys to top level competition so that they get good exposure and experience."
Ravulo said they were targeting to finish in the top four again this year.
"We know it will be difficult but we have prepared well for the past few weeks.
"We took part in the Nakelo 7s last week as part of our build-up to the Central Coast 7s."
The former local giants have been pooled with fellow Fijian club Red Rock, Silktails and Manly.
"It's a tough pool and Red Rock will be very tough but we will take one game at a time.
"The players know what's expected from them and I am sure they can deliver on the field."
Other Fijian teams that will participate in the tournament are Tokatoka Westfield Barbarians, Lomaiviti Barbarians and Yamacia Rakavi.
