BEACHCOMBER was at a training session when told of how this team, recently formed, was given a trainer who was appointed to look after their fitness.

In one of their training sessions where he had to organise for a yo-yo test, he did that and the players in this new team were doing way better than expected, even better than those who have been going through the system for years. They were hitting the 20 and above mark. That’s even better than some of the 7s team players who went to Rio.

So these new set of players were happy to see that they had done well, only to be told later by another trainer that they had been doing a shorter distance than the usual, at least five metres shorter…

Pressure when there’s no coach appointed?

Only in Fiji!
