Fijian dream team'98 percent chance of winning Sevens World Cup- Serevi

"After the final I told Van Der Westhuizen, you guys won the 15s World Cup and I know you wanted the sevens but we have to take it home to Fiji".

"The girls are showing some really good intensity since we've been here".

Kenya bowed out at the semifinal stage in both the 2009 and 2013 World Cups, losing to Argentina in Dubai and England in Moscow respectively.

However, Ruto promised the team prior to leaving for U.S. that such embarrassing scenarios would not see the light of the day ever again. So there is no way we can dare to underestimate either the Irish or Chile.

Commenting on his squad selection ahead of the tournament in San Francisco, Simiyu believes it is the best side ever and capable of beating any team.

"We have been training well so far", he said.

Springboks Sevens coach Neill Powell says the manner in which his team handled the pressure in the last tournament of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series has given them a lot of confidence going into Rugby World Cup Sevens tournament in San Francisco this weekend.

Alisson has signed for Liverpool
Alisson had a strong season with Italian side AS Roma and played a vital role in their run to the Champions League semi finals. The Brazilian has always been Liverpool's solution to that, with the club putting in framework for a deal past year .

"The tournament structure is different, but exciting, and we are eager to get out there and get things started". "We will not be looking at the result of the final game, but rather at how we execute our own plan".

Semi Radradra made the cut for the World Cup.

The Russians are rated among the top five teams in the world, while South Africa are just outside the top ten.

TUKO.co.ke previously reported how the players played with Brand Kenya's "Make It Kenya" message in front of their kits hidden when they stunned Fiji 22-19 at the Paris Sevens.

"We are certainly not the favourites", Pienaar said.

In Luke Morgan they can boast the second deadliest try-scorer in the world this year, scoring only four fewer than hosts USA's Carlin Isles in the 2017/18 World Rugby Sevens Series. "We have worked hard over the last couple of months and came to San Francisco with some very clear objectives in mind".

"I would like to say a big 'Vinaka Vakalevu' to all our fans and supporters back at home and the Fiji Rugby Union staff for their endless support in assisting us to prepare for this important tournament".
