Shattered dream

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva
Tuesday, March 06, 2018

The loss to USA in the cup semi-finals confirmed that my dream of our Fiji Airways Fiji 7s team winning the Las Vegas leg was just a Hamilton win hype.

But, I believe our boys did well to defeat South Africa in the bronze medal playoff and we hope they will do better in Vancouver, Canada this week.

Let us learn from the Las Vegas cup champion USA, who have big, fast, strong boys in the team and two real speedsters in Perry Baker and Carlin Isles.

We all hope that Baber will bring in some big and fast sevens players and at least one real speedster as our boys prepare for Hong Kong, Commonwealth Games and the Sevens World Cup.

Right now, our boys need to work on their ball and all tackle, discipline and being fast at breakdowns.

So far, the 2017/18 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series has produced new winners at every leg.

Let us hope that our national 7s team will regroup this week in Vancouver.

Go Fiji, go.
