Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s coach Iliesa Tanivula eyes Spain to be their biggest threat in their quest to pro­gress through to the qualifying stages of the Rugby World Cup Sevens elimination rounds.

“They will be our first opponent and they are a tough and a physical side,”Tanivula said.

“They are our biggest threat and beating them to progress will not be an easy but it must be done.”

However, he’s optimistic of their chances in progressing.

“Our players have been playing and training well in the past three weeks and I am confident they can get the job done.”

He said there were other areas they were working on build­ing up to the World Cup, in terms of their game play situ­ations.

“The respond from the players have been good and they are eager to improve.

“We have a job to do and we will do our best in making sure that is done, not only done well but to the best of our abilities,” he said.
