Niue 'excited' to take on the best at Oceania 7s Champs

Niue have been drawn in the "international pool" and open their campaign against the hosts, World Series and Olympic champions Fiji.

Coach Tony Edwards said there were 10 new caps in his 12-man squad, which includes nine players from New Zealand, two from Australia and one from Niue, only assembled for the first time at the weekend.

"We've got the two who were in our last years squad [Lesley Taleni and Keonte Tiauli] so basically we've got a new bunch of boys," he said.
