VODAFONE Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan says recovery of the players will be the top priority ahead of the Glasgow 7s tournament in Scotland this weekend.

The team, which left the country early Saturday, was still travelling when Times Sport communicated with Ryan via email early yesterday.

The team arrived into Glasgow yesterday afternoon.

"Sunday (today) will be two pool recovery sessions sandwiched by a spin bike session to help alleviate the jet lag," he said.

The Glasgow 7s will start this Saturday followed by the last tournament of the series in London next weekend.

Fiji is pooled with Wales, Argentina and Kenya for the Glasgow 7s.

The Osea Kolinisau-skippered side is placed third on the IRB 7s series points table with 112 points behind leader New Zealand with 136 points and South Africa with 129 points

Fiji 7s:

Apisai Domolailai, Benito Masilevu, Donasio Ratubuli, Emosi Mulevoro, Leo Naikasau, Osea Kolinisau, Pio Tuwai, Samisoni Viriviri, Semi Kunatani, Vatemo Ravouvou, Viliame Mata, Waisea Nacuqu.
