WITH three more HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournaments to play before the series comes to the end, the Fiji Airways Fiji 7s team is among the three teams capable of winning the series title in June.

The Gareth Baber-coached side arrived in Singapore on Tuesday as they target their fourth win in the current series.

Baber said they knew it would be tough in Singapore. Fiji is second in the points standings with 123 points.

Defending HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series champion South Africa is in first spot with 126 points, while New Zealand is third with 107 points.

The Jerry Tuwai-captained side have been crowned champions in Hamilton, Vancouver and Hong Kong. After the disappointment of losing to New Zealand in the final of the Commonwealth Games two weeks ago, Baber and his boys want revenge in Singapore this weekend.
