Fiji to face New Zealand and Australia in Olympics warm up

The Fiji sevens rugby men’s and women’s teams will play Australia, New Zealand and an Invitational Barbarians side in Townsville, Australia on June 25-27 in a warm up for the Tokyo Olympics.

The inaugural PacificAus Oceania Sevens will be held at Queensland Country Bank stadium with four men’s and four women’s teams from Fiji, New Zealand and Australia.

The Australian Government is supporting the travel costs for Fiji’s national women and men’s sevens teams to compete in the tournament, through the Pacific Step-Up program, PacificAus Sports.

The $52m program aims to build sustainable elite sport pathways between Australia and the Pacific, with a major focus on women and girls.
