7s team settles in

THE Digicel Fiji Sevens team had a pool session yesterday to recover from the travelling they did on Monday.

Trainer Max Hughes guided the players in the opening team training session in Wellington to get their focus back on track.

Hughes said the pool session was vital for the players to get their muscles ready for some field sessions later this week.

"This is basically to recover from the jet lag and the welcome function which ran pretty late last night (Monday)," he said.

"We were supposed to have a gym session but things didn't work out so we have to rely on the pool session instead to get the players fully recovered."

Hughes said the players' fitness should be back to its peak after couple of field sessions before the tournament.

Players were seen enjoying the pool session and bonding well before the tournament which kicks off this Friday at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington.

Fiji is placed third in the 2012/13 HSBC Sevens World Series on 44 points.

New Zealand leads the race on 60 points followed by France on 46.
