FORMER 7s and Flying Fijian player Sireli Bobo’s Provider team aims to make its mark in the local sevens tournaments, beginning with the Tagimoucia tournament this Saturday at Thomson Park, Navua.
Provider head coach Bobo said they previously competed in four local tournaments and would be using the Tagimoucia 7s tournament as a build-up platform for their team.
“We have been rotating our 25-member squad for each tournament as part of our mission of getting the right winning combination. But this is the first time for us to be using the same set of 12 players for two consecutive tournaments,” Bobo said.
“Our goal is trying to get the right combination and game time, as we are aiming to compete in bigger 7s tournaments like the upcoming Raka 7s and the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournaments.”
He said their long-term priority was not only developing a player in the various aspects of the game but rather spiritually as well.
“We want to build and prepare our players not only physically, but spiritually as well.
“Teaching them to be obedient to God’s command. This is part and parcel of our preparation and development.
“In a sense that while being developed physically and spiritually but also in the utilisation of their talents,” he said.
