FORMER national sevens rep Vima Tuidraki has full confidence in the national team that will compete in the Wellington 7s tournament this weekend.
Tuidraki currently plies his trade for the Figeac Rugby Club in France with Aloesi Nailiko who is elder cousin of national sevens rookie Jasa Veremalua.
Both players are looking forward to Veremalua's debut in the HSBC Sevens World Series this weekend.
"I think the team that will play this weekend is a good one and Aloesi and I look forward to Jasa's debut, he is a very talented young player," Tuidraki said.
He said the senior players in the side should guide the five new players in the team well if they want to emerge victorious in the tournament.
"The senior players can tell the new players what to do in the different situations that will arise in the game.
"I played in the Series and I know what it's like out there, so I would advise them to play hard and play according to the game plan and I want to ask Fiji to pray for the Fiji team."
Tuidraki and Nailiko used to play for Nadi from 2006 and 2008 and were reunited this season when Nailiko signed for Figeac.
"Aloesi is the older brother of former Flying Fijian Jone Qovu Nailiko another cousin of new seven star Veremalua as his mother is the sister of Jasa's father.
Nailiko is from Malevu village in Baravi and Veremalua's mother is from Korotogo village, also in Nadroga.
