Fitness levels impress Ryan

Maciu Malo
Thursday, August 28, 2014

BLK Nadroga open side flanker Apisai Domolailai was one of the few players who stood out in the West players 7s fitness test held at Lawaqa Park yesterday.

The former national 7s rep was in top form and topped the forwards beep test to surpass Level 17.

Domolailai was challenged by his fellow Nadroga native Jasa Veremalua who surpassed Level 16.

Daveta playmaker Eminoni Nasilasila topped the backline beep test on Level 18.5.

National 7s coach Ben Ryan said he was impressed with the fitness level of 19 players who participated at the fitness test.

"I didn't expect anybody to be fit to the level I require for the first tournament in Gold Coast," he said.

"They (players) have shown they have pretty good base so we are not starting from scratch next week in camp.

"The boys got some good scores during the test and we could only try and improve those scores to last the boys for the top games in the world series."

Notable names absent from the fitness test were Pio Tuwai, Waisea Nacuqu and Joeli Lutumailagi.

"I don't know where Joeli is, he hasn't contacted me," he said.

"Pio and Waisea Nacuqu are playing for Ba tomorrow they are not here as I would like them to be here.

"I was a bit disappointed but they will be in camp next week and lets give them the benefit of doubt they are keen to play rugby.

"They are both good boys and being available for everything else I require so I think it's just the case of one last game for Ba before they come into camp."

Other big names present at the fitness test were former skipper Emosi Vucago, Sailosi Rabonaqica, Apisalome Waqatabu, Vatemo Ravouvou, Samu Saqiwa and Ropate Labalaba.
