Tanivula anticipates next leg

FORMER national men's coach Iliesa Tanivula is looking forward to coaching the Fijiana side at the next leg of the IRB Women's Sevens World Series.

The Nadi-based coach was roped in to mentor the side after head coach Timoci Wainiqolo was not able to travel and attend training because of work commitments.

Tanivula said this was the first time he would be coaching women but he added the concept of sevens rugby was still the same.

The former NZ sevens rep was impressed with the levels of skills, commitment and fitness in the squad and will work on a suitable combination and game plan.

The side had a scrimmaging session last Saturday with two local clubs and Tanivula said the girls were enjoying the game and learning very fast.

"We have been just continuing with the work Jim Wainiqolo had been doing and now it's a matter of finetuning the basic core skills," he said.

"We mixed the combinations around to see which fits where and slowly everything is falling into place."

Tanivula said the concept of a traditional international sevens series for women was a good idea to help with the development of the sport.
