Captain confident

Maciu Malo
Friday, January 31, 2014

CAPTAIN Courageous Osea Kolinisau is confident his troops will do wonders at the Wellington 7s next weekend.

He says the players are aware of the expectations of the people and are ready to lay their bodies on the line for Fiji.

"We are very disappointed in Las Vegas but we have done some positive things over the two days of competition in Vegas," said Kolinisau.

"Our defence stood out very well against Wales and Kenya compared to the game against Australia and New Zealand.

"As for Wellington we just need to pick up on our defence and add some technical aspects to our attacks.

"There are positive vibes among the boys we are looking forward to the Wellington 7s.

"We will try and win the tournament after disappointing the fans in Las Vegas."

Kolinisai said the players had learnt a lot from the Las Vegas loss, especially the different interpretations of the laws by match officials.

"We just need to play well and we are going to do things perfectly."

Fiji faces New Zealand in their opening pool game in Wellington on next week Friday.
