DIGICEL Fiji sevens head coach Alifereti Dere has faith that his new players will prove their selection at the upcoming HSBC Sevens World Series tournaments in Hong Kong and Japan.
Dere named three players in Donasio Ratubuli, Emosi Mulevoro and Sakiusa Gavidi to add the long list of players that he has introduced to the IRB series this season.
Already, he has unleashed 20 new players since the Las Vegas tournament as he tries to find the best talent building up to the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow, Russia.
At So Kon Po stadium, the former national sevens captain introduces Gavidi, Mulevoro and Ratubuli, taking his tally to 23 heading into the sixth tournament.
Gavidi steps into the big shoes of Joji Ragamate who pulled out of the team to concentrate on his Wardens recruitment.
Dere said Gavidi was a promising young talent.
"He (Gavidi) went through the system from age group level and he has really adapted well in the team. He is the only specialist halfback in the team to continue the trend from Nikola Matawalu, Emosi Vucago and Joji Ragamate," he earlier told Time Sport.
Other players like Ilai Tinai, Samisoni Viriviri and Mulevoro are capable candidates to slot into the halfback position if the need arises.
Tinai has formed a formidable combination with Ragamate with the Wardens and the national sevens side. However, at Happy Valley Mulevoro and Gavidi will again form the halves combination in the absence of Ragamate.
The Hong Kong 7s kicks off on next Friday.
