Pacific sprint king Banuve Tabakaucoro and former Natabua High School sprinter Batanisavu Uluiyata are in the Vodafone Fiji sevens extended squad and could provide the speed that the team has lacked in the past seasons.
Coach Gareth Baber says, speed is an important aspect of the game and his team will need to have that.
“Anybody that has played sevens knows that speed is an important aspect of the game. The nature of the pitch allows you to have a lot of space around you so if you have pace, it gets you out of a lot of trouble and cause a lot of problems for other teams.”
The 30-member extended squad is camping in Sigatoka.
The first leg of the World Series begins in Dubai on the 2nd of December.
