Sevens starts preparation

THE Vodafone Fiji 7s team will start its preparation for the all important 2014/15 HSBC Sevens World Series next month.

Coach Ben Ryan in his latest column on the ur7s.com said they would start with the pre-season training to ensure players were fit for the gruelling test anticipated in the upcoming series.

The top four from the 2014/15 IRB 7s series will qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

"The national 7s team has never had a proper pre season block of training so be great to start this process off and go hard from the start," Ryan wrote.

"With Olympic qualification appearing next season, the goal posts have moved in a few spheres."

Fiji finished third in the 2013/14 series behind New Zealand and South Africa respectively.
