Red Rock hopes to win back major sevens titles

The Red Rock Rugby Club hopes to restore lost glory this season.

The Qauia-based club failed to defend its major tournament titles last year, including the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast 7s.

And during the festive season, the players have been sweating it out in a bid to reclaim all the major tournaments this season.

Inspirational coach Lote Rasiga said they failed to defend a single tournament last year.

"It is always hard to defend," he said.

"We failed to defend any major title but we are working hard again to try and win some more tournaments which we will be competing in."

He said his players had been training hard during the festive season.

"We have been training for the past few weeks.

"We know that this year is not going to be an easy hurdle for us but we are looking forward to the challenge ahead.

"It's a lot easier now, we are going to compete in tournaments and not defending some tournaments.

"When we defend, there is huge pressure on us going in as defending champions."

Rasiga added he is optimistic more of his players will break into the national team this season.
