SWIRE Shipping Fijian Latui coach Senirusi Seruvakula believes the new Global Rapid Rugby format is one well suited to Fiji’s style of fast rugby.

“It suits us well and is everything about what we are about,” Seruvakula said.

“Not just us but also all other teams in the competition and we have to lift up into another level.”

Seruvakula was impressed with the win last week against Kagifa Samoa but said it was now behind them.

“We have to minimise lazy rugby and do away with things that will result is our giving away the ball as well as yellow cards.”

“I need them to expose their talents and keep the ball alive. The message to them is for them to just go out there and enjoy and lift up their skill levels.”

The Latui will take on the Western Force this Saturday at Churchill Park in Lautoka.
