THE knight of sevens rugby, Sir Gordon Tietjens, says Fiji would be unbeatable in this weekend’s HSBC Hamilton 7s because of its X-factors – Meli Derenalagi, Aminiasi Tuimaba and Vilimoni Botitu – who are unknown.

“We have new players coming in on the Fiji side and we do not know about them,” Sir Tietjens said.

“They are no doubt the X-factors that suit the team.

“Last year, Fiji won the tournament at the last stages of their games. Only good teams can do that and to do that, you have to have very good players.”
