Chances: For all their speed and skill in sevens, and absolute passion for rugby, the Fijians have never really cracked the 15-a-side format, mainly due to their loosey-goosey style of play.
They've traditionally struggled in the forward exchanges, but are certainly capable of the odd upset, as they showed against France last year.
