Team gift for Viriviri

THE Vodafone Fiji 7s team players have vowed to give departing member Samisoni Viriviri the best possible farewell by winning the remaining tournaments at the HSBC Sevens World Series.

The flying Viriviri has signed up a contract with French Top 14 club Montpellier.

Captain Osea Kolinisau said they would miss the speedster next season.

Kolinisau said he was lucky to be handed the leadership role.

"Our plan always is to win every tournament," he said.

"We will try and improve from the last one. We do not have any chance of winning the series because of the point's difference against New Zealand.

"But if we do well than we can go past South Africa to the second spot. We want to end the season on a high note and give Sami (Viriviri) a perfect farewell gift.

"We will miss him next season. He is way ahead on the season try scorers list. While we will miss him, there are always new talents coming up.

"I'm thankful to Ben Ryan for giving me the captain's armband. There are many players in the team that can lead the team like Pio Tuwai who has been captaining the Totatoka Westfield Barbarians."

Fiji is pooled with Wales, Argentina and Kenya for Glasgow.

"All I'm trying to do is to improve in every game and help the boys settle in the series and try to get the best out in every tournament," Kolinisau said.

"We are in a very tough pool. The next season will serve as the qualifiers for the Olympics so we want to set a good benchmark on this trip."
