Bobo: Social media can affect performance

FORMER Fijian 7s skipper Sireli Bobo said that social media could also affect player's performances if they spent too much time on it.

"Most of these players are on Facebook, their families are also on social media and as a player how will you feel when you see filthy, depressing comments made against you. Will you like it? Of course not, you will feel bad and it will affect your performance so that is why we should always be by the players side," Bobo said.

The 42-year-old has retired from rugby but is still keen in coaching and playing in local tournaments.

He said the players should keep in mind, that rugby is a team sport, not an individual game like athletics or boxing.

"That is why we have everyone there as a team to defend and attack, one for all and all for one.

"Communication is very vital and trusting each other to back each other up.

"So for me, it comes down to teamwork, whether in defence or attack, always make use of the player beside you and never be too greedy to take the ball and score."

He played with the Fiji 7s side at Dubai and Durban in the IRB sevens circuit. He then signed with Spanish club UCM Canoe and the side went on to win the King's Cup in the 2001 season.

He returned to Fiji for the 2002 season and went on to captain the Fiji sevens side in 2003, as well as becoming a try-scoring machine; scoring 22 in just three tournaments and made his debut for the Fiji 7s team in 1997.
