THE Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s team will depart Fiji to train for two weeks in Colorado in readiness for the Rugby World Cup Sevens women’s tournament to be played along the men’s tournament in San Francisco on July 20-22.

Head coach Iliesa Tanivula said the girls were released yesterday to join their loved ones before flying out of the country on Saturday, July 7.

He said the high altitude training in Colorado would best prepare the girls for the world event.

Fiji will face Spain in their opening pool game and a win will guarantee the side a quarter-final berth.

Ana Maria Roqica is expected to lead the side.
