Tuvalu return after four years to take part in the 2017 Oceania Sevens Rugby Championship at the ANZ Stadium, Suva yesterday.

Coach and former national rugby captain Ro Alivereti Doviverata said despite losing their first game to Papua New Guinea 26-10, he was pleased with their performance.

“So far so good and we just prepared for one week in Tuvalu,”he said.

“This is also their first international tournament after four years and we aim to learn from the experience.

“We need to work on retaining possession so we can score more tries.

“Our attacking shape is a little bit flat but we are also working on that as well.”
