THE Nabua 7s team has departed for a month-long stint in Australia.
Coach Simione Kuruvoli said the side would compete at three 7s competitions including the Kiama 7s to be held at end of the month.
He said the Kiama 7s would also feature some of Fiji 7s best teams such as Yamacia and Red Rock.
Red Rock and Yamacia players are also in Australia to participate in a few tournaments there.
Kuruvoli said the majority of the team included members of the Nabua Broncos Rugby League team since the rugby boys were engaged with off-season training.
"We had a mutual understanding with our rugby league brothers to have their players be part of this tour since our boys are busy with their off-season training," he said.
"We have been touring Australia for five consecutive years and our boys have gained a lot from this rugby exposure.
"This tour will expose our boys to secure rugby contracts and this is a good chance for the players to showcase their talent."
Kuruvoli said the boys would use this week to acclimatise before they start with serious business next weekend.
"We will start playing 7s from next weekend before we battle against our Fijian brothers in the Yamacia and Red Rock teams for the Kiama 7s in South Sydney on February 22.
"Our players have been urged to learn as much as they can from this tour and give their best in all their games."
