THE Digicel national sevens squad spent their training run in Suva yesterday working on winning possession at kick-offs.
National coach Alifereti Dere and his assistant Timoci Wainiqolo emphasised to the players the importance of winning possession during kick offs.
"You need to work together in order to do well in this area of the game," Dere told his players.
"You must keep that communication line open all the time."
Wainiqolo reminded the players to do everything right from the start and that starts with winning their share of possession during kick-off.
"You need to win your kick-offs and make sure that quality balls are given to your backline so they can do their job well," Wainiqolo said.
"You will make things easier for everybody when you win your possession from the kick-off."
Lanky Navy lock Jo Levula and hardworking Tailevu forward Inia Tukere contested for possession during the training run yesterday.
In the backline Joji Ragamate and Ilai Tinai worked their magic around the new set of players who are expected to be named today in the final 12-member team to travel to the next leg of the IRB Sevens World Series in Dubai and South Africa.
Only four players from the first leg in Gold Coast have been retained in the 16-member training squad.
The team will be led by Setefano Cakau.
