DIGICEL Fiji sevens coach Alifereti Dere used the scrimmaging sessions with the Army team yesterday to gauge the weaknesses of the players in the two national teams that will feature in the Uprising 7s next week.
Dere named the Digicel Fiji Barbarians and FMF Fiji Warriors comprising of players from the 21-member training squad for the Uprising 7s to be held at Churchill Park in Lautoka.
The former Fiji 7s skipper said the scrimmaging session provided him with a good opportunity to gel the players.
"This is a good preparation for the team for the Uprising 7s and I thank Army for giving us this opportunity to play with them," Dere said.
"The main aim of this scrimmaging session is to give us an idea what these players lack on so we can work on those weaknesses in the remaining days before the Uprising 7s."
Dere and his assistant Timoci Wainiqolo worked on the basics during the training sessions since the players joined camp on Monday.
Trainer Max Hughes also took a session to keep players up with the fitness level.
The national players will break camp today before rejoining on Sunday.
