Tietjens banks on Cama to do the job

FOR every young apprentice Gordon Tietjens discovers, there needs to be a master to guide the team.

And that's why Tietjens will be looking to Tomasi Cama Jr to do the job.

Cama's incredible statistics provide the first look into how effective he is as a player.

Cama sits second overall for points scored in the HSBC Sevens World Series with 1929, second only to Ben Gollings (2652).

He has 145 tries to sit seventh on the all-time tryscorers list and amazed 627 conversions.

At 33, the son of former Fiji sevens star Tomasi Cama returns to the series after missing out on the Las Vegas leg because of injury.

"I'm looking forward to the Wellington 7s, I'm back from injury and I hope to make my mark," Cama Jr said.

"I haven't really prepared well but I hope to play well."

His first game back will be a mouthwatering affair with his fellow Fijian countrymen. And it's one he's is keenly looking forward to.

"It will be a tough game and it will be no different from other games that have been played between the two nations.

"It is also one game that we are looking forward to as a team."

New Zealand's future stars Akira Ioane and Ben Lam will have Cama guiding them along in his 59th series tournament.
