DYNAMIC duo Vatemo Ravouvou and Waisea Nacuqu impressed in the 52-0 win over Sri Lanka in the Hong Kong 7s yesterday.

Vodafone Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan used Ravouvou at playmaker's role while Nacuqu at half back and rested captain Osea Kolinisau and Emosi Mulevoro who suffered a minor knee injury.

Ravouvou and Nacuqu sparkled on the wet Hong Kong Stadium pitch to help Fiji score eight tries in the impressive win.

Ryan said the duo would get better with time.

"The pressure hasn't come on them yet but certainly they looked very ease in this sort of environment."

Ryan also said they had options for playmakers role."I hope people stop saying we need to find some playmakers. There are four or five that we have already found this year and with Oscar, Emosi and Henry Seniloli at home."
