Fiji to use Oceania 7s to improve certain areas of their game

The Fiji Airways Men’s National 7 side are looking to use the Oceania 7s this weekend on improving certain areas of their game.

Coach Ben Gollings says they will focus on the key elements such as their combinations and developing a new thought process on the way in which they want to play.

He says they will also try to polish up on certain areas of the game and if they do, they will get the result they want.

Gollings has maintained his core squad for the Oceania 7s with captain Tevita Daugunu to lead the forward pack together with Elia Canakaivata and Semi Kunatani.

Pilipo Bukayaro, Waisea Nacuqu, Jerry Tuwai and Kaminieli Rasaku are expected to provide experienced hands in the backs.

Josua Vakurinabili, Napolioni Bolaca, Josefa Talacolo and Sevuloni Mocenacagi have missed selection due to injuries.
