The Fiji Airways Fiji 7s team is ready to defend the Hamilton 7s this weekend.

Captain Meli Derenalagi is confident that his boys will deliver the results in New Zealand.

In the new format, a team each from the four pools will qualify to the semi-finals rather than playing quarterfinals as it used to be.

Gareth Baber yesterday named his final team for this weekend.

Baber has opted for a balance between forwards and backs to tackle the strong opponents in the do or die pool games with winger Alasio Naduva named the 13th player.

“Utility players Waisea Nacuqu, Livai Ikanikoda and Napolioni Ratu can play in several positions in the back-line, offering us flexibility in our approach to each opponent” said Baber.

Fiji kicks off his campaign against Samoa at 12.47pm and then faces Australia at 6.35pm.

They meet Argentina in their final pool match at 11.57am on Sunday.
