The Fijiana 7s side has maintained its core players who played in the Dubai 7s last month.

Savusavu lass Verenaisi Bari and Nadroga first five-eighth Ivamere Nabura are the two new faces who have been roped into the travelling squad for the Malaga 7s in Spain.

The team withdrew its participation on the weekend because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Coach Saiasi Fuli said they had retained the core of the team to continue to introduce young players whenever there was an opportunity.

“Bari is a very strong ball carrier and an explosive forward while Nabura has been camping with us for the past few months and this is their chance to go out and get the international exposure,” he said.

“We selected a balanced squad and we are confident that this squad can go across and compete well and challenge the top teams once again.”

Fijiana 7s:

1. Rusila Nagasau, 2. Vasiti Solikoviti, 3. Sesenieli Donu, 4. Raijeli Daveua, 5. Verenaisi Bari, 6. Reapi Ulunasau, 7. Mereula Toroti, 8. Lavena Cavuru, 9. Ana Maria Naimasi, 10. Aloesi Nakoci, 11. Mereani Rogosau, 12. Ivamere Nabura, 13. Ana Maria Roqica
