Sale's Sevens Diary - Murrayfield Underline 27 May, 2011
The Digicel Fiji 7s team at Murrayfield.
Bula Everyone. 

Today we had two training sessions. We also visited Murrayfield where the last leg will take place. It is a massive stadium and the boys are excited just stepping onto the pitch. Nikola Matawalu and Mitieli Nacagilevu were chasing after each other on the ground and Metuisela Talebula was getting his picture taken sitting on the edge of one section of the stadium. 

While everyone is in high spirits there is one wee bit of concern which is Dale’s muscle spasm on his lower back. I hope that it is right for Saturday. 

At training, we were again visited by Fijians from the 1st Scots Regiment. Another former soldier Lakalaka Waqanivere also turned up to watch training. He was a soldier in the Royal Fiji Military Forces and has lived here for 10 years. They all chipped in by running water in or just shouting encouragement at training. It is very humbling to see fellow Fijians assisting us this way. 

I went with one of the liaison officers to buy some sticky spray for Saturday from a nearby town called Pebbles. It has a massive warehouse of rugby gear which can only be bought on line. It’s a pity because the team would be there in no time. 

Word is that a lot of Fijian supporters will be driving up from England to watch the team play this weekend. The team is brimming with confidence and I sincerely believe that we can do better than last week. Scotland is first up and they have the home crowd support. It has been a long week and we cannot wait to get this party started. 

We have a free day tomorrow (Friday). Some boys need to do some admin work while others have some shopping to do. But whatever we do on Friday, our minds are tuned in to what could be a great weekend for Fiji Sevens. 

We would like to thank the families of the British Army personnel who have been assisting us at the grounds and providing recovery food. We have a lot of local support and the boys must deliver for themselves, their families and supporters. 

We believe we’re due for a win and we thank you all back home for your continued support, particularly those who have been following us on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/fijirugby. 

God bless Fiji.
