Newcomers raring to go

THE Red Rock 7s team will unveil some new players at the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s tournament in Nadi next weekend.

Following an exodus of some senior players, the Qauia-based side has had to recruit new players to fill the gaps left by players who secured contracts in Australia last month.

Coach Lote Rasiga took the Grand Melanesian Hotel-sponsored side through some scrimmaging sessions yesterday with their shadow teams.

He said the players had learnt very fast and should be ready before the start of the tournament.

"There are a lot of new players in the team and they are looking good," Rasiga said.

"We just need to test them in a game situation to see how they response and so far it has been going well.

"But we will be fully ready when the tournament starts and the combinations and patterns will be all set."

He said players from different provinces would feature for the side.

"Here in Qauia, people from different provinces live and so these players that we have here are from different provinces. They may come from different backgrounds but their passion for rugby is the same and they are fitting well in the team."

Ragisa said the tournament was one of the best and biggest in the country and would be one of the toughest.
