Fiji Airways Fijian 7s Prepare for Hong Kong

The Fiji Airways Fijian 7s are on track with their preparation for the Asian leg of the HSBC SVNS starting with the Hong Kong 7s tournament scheduled for the 5th to 7th of April.

Coach Osea Kolinisau had his first training session with the team at the Vodafone Arena and was impressed with how the players responded during the sessions that was held late yesterday afternoon.

“We want to dictate the tempo of the game and play a high tempo game that we are known for and that can only be achieved through fitness,”said Kolinisau.

“Defense is another aspect of our game that we are working on now. We want pride ourselves on our defense as this will win us championships.”

The new national coach mentioned that the players will be released to play for their individual clubs in the upcoming Tabadamu and Marist 7s tournaments.

“There will be no Fiji Barbarians side taking part in the local tournaments and I want the boys to have a good outing with their teams with their own clubs.”

“We will be looking at the Marist tournament and based on our selection criteria we might find a bolster in that tournament,”said Kolinisau.

Kolinisau added that the final national team will be selected after the Marist 7s and will be based in Suva throughout the remainder of the HSBC SVNS series.

The Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team is in pool B with Australia, Ireland and South Africa at the Hong Kong 7s that will be played at So Kon Po Stadium for the last time after 30 years.
