The side will fly Business class, stopping over at Chile, before arriving in Rio.

Coach Ben Ryan earlier stated that the team would be pushed a little bit extra in Chile before they round up things in Santiago.

RYAN: “This is the next final stage I guess we will just have a few more days in Fiji. When we get in the plane from Santiago that is where our tapping will begin and we will get rid of all the distraction and we will just stay really tight as a team for those four days, get everything right.”

The side will take on Brazil in its first match at 4.30am on 10th of August, they will then face Argentina at 9.30am and plays the USA at 4.30am on the 11th of August.

Our women’s team who left earlier will play the USA at 4 am on August 7th in their first pool match before they take on Australia at 9.30am on the same day. Their last pool match is against Colombia at 4 am August 8th.
