FORMER national sevens star Tomasi Cama paid a visit to his old club last week and passed on some valuable tips to the Nabua 7s team as they prepare for the two-day Coral Coast Great Eight 7s tournament.
Cama, who coaches in Malaysia, spent last week helping the young Nabua team as they prepare for this weekend's tournament at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.
Nabua sevens official Joji Navonu said they were fortunate that Cama was able to meet the boys and shared some of his experience with them.
Navonu said he believed Cama's input would boost the team's performance in Sigatoka.
"We are slowly trying to revive sevens in Nabua and participating at this weekend's tournament is part of this process," Navonu said.
"We want to take Nabua back to where it was in sevens in the eighties.
"We have a young team training for the Great Eight tournament and the boys are all looking forward to this tournament," Navonu said.
Nabua has been placed in a tough pool at the Great Eight tournament. The side faces Samurai Barracudas and Police 2 in Pool 4.
Only the top eight teams from the Great Eight 7s tournament qualify for this month's Coral Coast Sevens.
Among teams playing this weekend is last weekend's Central Coast 7s winners Westfield Barbarians.
