GOOD news for rugby 7s fans.

Sky Pacific yesterday announced that it will air all 10 tournaments in the 2017-2018 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series starting with the Dubai 7s on Friday.

Digicel Fiji chief executive Mike Greig said this was because of the popularity of the annual tournament to Fijians and those around the region.

"We are delighted to once again bring full coverage of all ten stellar tournaments held around the world in this season's World Sevens Series on Sky Pacific," he said.

"The series is a great spectacle for TV viewers and the 16 teams in the world deliver non-stop rugby action. It will give even more rugby fans a taste of the excitement, incredible skills and unpredictability on show in the series from December to June.

"The HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series is the most-watched sports event in Fiji and the Pacific. The sport received a major boost after Fiji won the Olympic Games gold medal last year. The Gareth Baber-coached team will hope to set the platform right and work towards clinching the series after losing the title last season to South Africa."

Third seed Fiji leads Pool C in Dubai this weekend against Australia, Wales and Russia.

"Alongside the men's sevens series, Sky Pacific will also broadcast selected tournaments from the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series. Women's rugby is growing in the world and our Fijiana team will be part of the series this season," Greig said.
