THE Fijiana 7s side has been pooled with New Zealand, United States of America (USA) and Ireland for the Emirates Dubai Rugby Sevens tournament.
The Women's Sevens World Series begins with New Zealand defending the title during the tournament on November 28 and 29 at Dubai's purpose-built 7he Sevens Stadium.
National women's coach Timoci Wainiqolo labelled it the pool of death and said they would now start their preparations.
"We are in the pool of death for the Dubai 7s," he said.
"As you know New Zealand are the defending Dubai 7s champions and they are also the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013 champions.
"USA is also a tough side and so is Ireland and they are both core teams in the Series."
The Fijiana failed to qualify to be a core team when they failed to make the quarter-final of the World Cup.
However, they have been invited to participate in the Dubai and China leg of the Series.
New Zealand had beaten the Fijiana side 12-26 during pool play at the Oceania Women's 7s tournament in Noosa, Australia earlier this month.
But the Fijiana team came back to beat the World Champions 17-10 in the semi-finals of the tournament.
Wainiqolo said the Series would be different compared to the Oceania tournament.
"That was just a regional tournament. This is the World Series we are talking about and definitely, New Zealand would make changes and come ready to defend their title.
"We will also start our preparations from next week. We have three weeks left to prepare and I am sure we will prepare to the best of our abilities.
"We are looking forward to the series and we will select a good team to play in this first leg."
The side to travel to Dubai is expected to be named early next month.
