Silicon Valley 7s

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa,Suva
Wednesday, November 08, 2017

Just one word to describe the performance of our Fiji sevens Barbarians side that represented our nation at the Silicon Valley Sevens — pathetic!

As already predicted, the Australian 7s team, who have been building up one core team, again thrashed Fiji 29-0 in their first pool match and moved on to add the Silicon Valley title to their Oktoberfest and Central Coast titles.

With two buildup teams, we all hope that the main Fiji 7s team will be on par with Australia and other teams who have been building up just one core team to represent their nation.

The main Fiji 7s team will be picked this week to play in the Oceania 7s and if we cannot win our own home tournament, it means these two teams exercise has been a waste of time.
