Silverbacks caretaker coach Gerald Nsenga told Times Sport that the training sessions will be held daily to give the team ample time to prepare.

“We have decided to start daily sessions because we want the lads to gel and improve on their speed. For most of them, it’s their first international tournament, so they need to be at their best against more experienced sides like Fiji,” Nsenga said.

Hong Kong 10s is a traditional curtain raiser for the prestigious Hongo Kong sevens tournament.

Silverbacks: Bikamba Lucien(C), Benjamin Makombe, Didier Kamanzi, Eric Mbarushimana, Emmanuel Nemeye, Juma Adams Mugabo, Koko Cyambara, Jean Leonel Twizeyimana, Kamali Vincent,Moise Habumugisha, Aime Ndahirwa,Juvenal Gatabazi,Olivier Uwamahoro.
