France rugby video analyst wants to help Fijians

Maciu Malo
Monday, June 30, 2014

A FRANCE Top 14 rugby video analyst is willing to share his rugby knowledge and experience with the Fiji rugby players.

Inspired by the achievements and benchmark of Fijian players in France, Bordeaux Begles video analyst Serge Fourquet has declared his intention to work for the FRU.

He said the class and talent of Fijian players separated them from other best players in world rugby.

Fourquet said he admired Fijian rugby which was one of the reasons he wanted to work with FRU.

"Fijian rugby is like the Brazilian team in soccer," he said.

"Fijian players have flair unmatched in world rugby.

"This is why I wanted to work with the Fiji national team and to offer my experience to help Fiji rugby."

He said Fijian players had the passion for rugby which made them special.

"Fijian players do have their weaknesses like every other team — such as lack of organisation and game plans.

"But their style of playing is so particular that we do not know what to expect.

"That is why I love Fijians, they enjoy the game.

"Fiji Rugby spirit is what we need in the world of rugby."

Fourquet said he was pleased to witness abundance of talents in the country.

"I am excited to see the talents in Fiji and definitely I will recommend few players to my club back home."

Fourquet's club had recruited Fijian players such as Talebula, Avenisi Vasuinubu and former Flying Fijians forward Sisa Koyamaibole.

He is expected to visit some schools on Taveuni this week.
