Strong defence

Our Fiji 7s team will improve but will need to quickly polish their defence and work on maintaining possession.

After winning the Rugby League World Cup, Australian captain Cameron Smith asserted that defence not only wins you matches but tournaments, evident in only 16 points they conceded in the entire tournament. An impressive record!

Because Fiji is so lethal in attack, all teams plan to starve our team of possession.

To counter that, we simply need to maintain possession; win kick-offs and set pieces and reduce turnover balls, penalties and mistakes.

South African 7s captain Snyman, when interviewed after winning the cup final in Dubai, said they were focused on the processes throughout the entire tournament and not the results.

His comments reveal that if we are focused on perfecting the processes, results will speak for themselves. A profound insight not limited to rugby.

Anyway, our boys will be doing it all over again in Cape Town and I am optimistic that our team will progress to the cup finals.

Wishing our team and management the very best.
