SPEED merchant Samisoni Viriviri is eager to get back to his old form that amazed rugby fans when he broke into the HSBC Sevens World Series limelight last season.
The Dratabu man from Nadi was not pleased with his performance at the Gold Coast tournament in Australia earlier this month.
Speaking to Times Sport yesterday, Viriviri, who was named the Best and Fairest player at the Hong Kong 7s tournament last March, said he could not wait to get back to his old form.
"I believe I was unfit at the Gold Coast 7s," he said.
"I will try to work on my fitness before the next leg at the Dubai and George tournaments."
Digicel Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan has informed his players to lift their performance. Viriviri said Ryan reminded the players to do their own homework.
"Yes, that is what he (Ryan) said for us to try and do our own training during the break."
Last week, Viriviri helped Nadroga reclaim the prestigous Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy against Tailevu 27-22 at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.
He scored a brilliant solo try running from inside Nadroga's 22-metre line, kicked the ball before collecting it to cross the whitewash.
"I was really not expecting that try. I just tried to do what I think will benefit the team.
"To be honest I did not know that the ball will bounce to where I was running. I think I was at the right time to score the try."
The Stallions fullback has also set his sight on the 2015 Rugby World Cup in London.
"My aim now is the next world cup, I know it is far but work has to be done now."
Viriviri is expected to be part of Ryan's team to contest the second Sevens World Series leg in Dubai and George.
