THE Central Chiefs women's sevens rugby side will rely on their Fijiana players to do the damage when they compete in the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s this week.

The side has been drawn in pool one with the Marist Seahawks, New Caledonia and Nadi Ranadi for the event that will be held at the ANZ Stadium on Friday and Saturday.

Team manager Pasemaca Buadromo said the team had been training regularly.

"Even though our team is only one-year-old, we are looking forward to competing at the Marist 7s," she said.

"We have some Fijiana reps in our side and they will be our key players in the tournament."

The Chiefs will be boosted by national reps such as Elina Ratauluva, Pricilla Siata, Timaima Tamoi and Rusila Nagasau.

Buadromo said they were wary of the teams in their pool but were concentrating on their own game.

"The teams in our pool are really good, especially the Marist Seahawks since they have been winning most of the tournaments.

"As for the New Caledonia side, we don't know much about them but they will play rugby and we are playing rugby, so we expect a good game.

"But most importantly, we will just have to wait for the day of the game to see what happens on the field."
