Right attitude wanted

THE national sevens team resumes camp tomorrow and team manager Ropate Kauvesi has asked the players to come with a different attitude towards training.

With the Vodafone Fiji sponsored-team sitting at third place in the HSBC Sevens World Series with 73 points after five tournaments, Kauvesi said the players needed to have the right attitude to form a winning combination.

He said the attitude of a player determined the direction he would head.

"One thing we have always emphasised to players is right attitude," he said.

"Because talent is one thing, hard work is one thing and right attitude is another.

"You need to have those three things if you want to be a successful player."

Kauvesi said they were moving camp back to the Uprising Beach Resort in Deuba after training for whole week in Ra.

"This is because of management issues. There is a lot of paperwork to be done as we move close to the next leg of the series."

Meanwhile, Kauvesi says they're looking forward to working with the new players who'll join camp this week.

"We want to involve as many players as possible because we want to assess them all.

"We are giving all players an equal opportunity to prove themselves."
