7s back in camp

THE Vodafone Fiji sevens team returned to camp yesterday as it prepares for the final leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series tournaments in Scotland and London.

With the season's series title out of reach of the national sevens side, coach Ben Ryan hopes to end the 2013/2014 season on a high note.

The side had its first training session yesterday at the Uprising Beach Resort in Pacific Harbour.

After naming the team last Thursday at the Pearl South Pacific Resort in Pacific Harbour, Ryan and his troops dispersed for the Easter weekend. However, yesterday, it was back to business for the Osea Kolinisau-captained side.

Team manager Paula Biu said all players reported to camp at the Uprising Beach Resort.

"All players are back in camp including the five non-travelling reserves," Biu said.

"They're well prepared and are ready for this week's training."

Fiji is third on the overall table with 112 points; New Zealand leads the race with 136 followed by South Africa with 129. England is fourth with 104 and Australia 87.

Fiji's speedster Samisoni Viriviri is the season's top try scorer with 40 tries under his belt. Livewire hooker Benito Masilevu has 24 tries along with Kenya's Collins Injera. The duo are tied at third position. Tim Mikkelson of New Zealand is second with 29 tries.

Tom Mitchell of England leads the season's points scorer with 265 followed by Viriviri 200. Fiji's nippy playmaker Emosi Mulevoro is third with 190.

At the Scotland tournament in Glasgow, Fiji is grouped in Pool C along with Argentina, Kenya and former world champion Wales.
