A FIJIAN stands in the way of a second Fiji victory in the IRB Sevens World Series.
Digicel Fiji sevens team captain Setefano Cakau revealed that their eyes were on Tomasi Cama and the Kiwis and that the playmaker was the mastermind behind New Zealand's success of late.
Cakau said they would have to contain Cama if New Zealand was to be toppled from atop the series points table.
The Alifereti Dere-coached side begins its campaign at the Glasgow Sevens tonight in Glasgow six points behind New Zealand.
"Tomasi Cama sets the play for New Zealand. He is the mastermind," Cakau said, stressing the need for his players to work as a unit. "We need to work as a team if we are to go on top of them (New Zealand). We need to work hard if we want to achieve what we have been aiming for."
He said his brigade knew what to expect in the last two tournaments of the series and they had prepared well.
Fiji has won the series only once — in the 2005-2006 season.
"It's going to be sad if we don't win this series because we (Fiji) have only won the series one time. We want to be the second Fiji team to do that," Cakau said.
Cakau will team up with Jimilai Naikadawa and Waisea Nayacalevu in the forwards for the first game against Zimbabwe at 10.36pm (Fiji time).
Joji Ragamate is at half-back, Metuisela Talebula at playmaker, soldier Isake Katonibau, who makes his return to the international scene, is at rover and Nadroga's Joeli Lutumailagi on the wing.
New Zealand is boosted by the return of this season's top tryscorer, Frank Halai, who was injured before the Hong Kong and Tokyo tournaments.
Also featuring for the Men in Black will be Lote Raikabula and new find Waisake Naholo.
South Africa, third on the points table, will be without the services of IRB Player of the Year Cecil Afrika and experienced halfback Paul Delport. Both suffered knee injuries in the previous tournaments.
Coach Paul Treu will introduce three players in this tournament - Ryan Nell, Jamba Ulengo and Clayton Blommetjies.
2009/2010 IRB Series winner Samoa will be looking to add another title to its name under new coach Tausa Faamaoni Lalomilo.
Lalomilo had been team manager and assistant to Stephen Betham for the past few years and was only given the coaching role when Betham was promoted to Manu Samoa 15-a side head coach.
Fiji's other games tomorrow are against Portugal at 1.42am and Argentina at 5.37am.
