FORMER national coach Iliesa Tanivula has taken over the reign as coach of the national women's sevens team — the Fijiana.

The former national men's 7s coach is filling in for Timoci Wainiqolo who is busy with work commitments.

Tanivula will coach the Telecom Fijiana side to the IRB Women's Sevens World Series China leg to be played on April 5 and 6 in Guangzhou.

Fiji Rugby Union media officer Talei Mow said Tanivula was roped in because Wainiqolo was not able to travel and spend time with the team because of work commitments.

Team manager Selita Koroi said the girls enjoyed working with Tanivula and were focused on their trip to Guangzhou.

"The girls are in good spirits and they are preparing very well," she said.

"Tanivula has given them time to talk after training sessions and drills and this is something new for the girls but it's something they need.

"The girls want to give their feedback and they have been given a chance to do that and it's something that makes things easier to be understood."

Koroi said everything had been positive so far and they wanted it to remain that way.

"We are all focused on Guangzhou and doing everything with a positive mind-set.

"Everyone is looking forward to the tournament and it will be tough but we are going with a positive attitude," the Fijian team manager said.
