Ryan names 18 as Cakau out
Former Fiji Sevens team captain Setefano Cakau has opted to stay out for the last two legs, Glasgow and London tournament of the HSBC World Sevens Series.
Defending OFC Champions League title holders, Auckland City (NZ) proved just why they are the powerhouses in Oceania football overwhelming Vodafone Shop n Save Nadi FC (Fiji) 3-0 in their Pool B encounter at Churchill Park.
Love 'em or loath 'em, one thing you gotta do is admire 'em. NZ proved just why they are a champion side crushing England 26-7 en route to their cup victory and 11th HK title at the 2014 HSBC/Cathay Pacific HK 7s.
The Vodafone Fiji 7s side are mesmerisingly on their way to the Cup quarter finals of the 2014 HSBC/Cathay Pacific HK 7s after a convincing 43-5 win over Kenya in its final pool match at So Kon Po stadium this evening.
From the likes of Amasio Valence Raoma to Tomasi Cama Jr - one of the best play makers in 7s history - we have witnessed how Pacific Islanders, more so, the cutting edge Fijians impact the success of NZ 7s in the world series.
It is now only a matter of hours before the Vodafone Fiji 7s side kicks off its HK 7s title defence against last year's runners-up Wales at the 2014 HSBC/Cathay Pacific sponsored 7th leg of the World 7s series at So Kon Po.
While most attention has been hurled at Series leaders South Africa, New Zealand and Fiji and early predictions have the three favourites to lift the HK trophy on Sunday, England are silently confident they can off-set this dominance.
Having already coached the Vodafone Fiji 7s side to two victories (Dubai, Japan) in the current HSBC 7s World Series, coach Benjamin Ryan believes the boys have what it takes to make it 3 in a row/ back to back in Hong Kong.
