Dubai Sevens 2017: FIJI Airways Drua players Eroni Sau and John Stewart have been named in the Fiji Airways 7s team to the first leg of the 2017/2018 HSBC World 7s Series in Dubai .
Coach Gareth Baber believes he has selected a very strong team and is confident they will do well in Dubai and South Africa.
“Both of them have been playing good rugby with certainly the National Rugby Championship even though they didn’t play in the Oceania 7s. I think the kind of quality play they have been playing stood out,” he said.
“It is good for the team to have two or three players like that playing in top level competition.
The level of training they have put in shows the level of maturity switching from 15s to 7s.
“They have accuracy in what they do and both are consistent and they deserve a selection.”
Baber said Yamacia player Apenisa Cakaubalavu was among the unknowns in the team.
