Current Toulon winger Josua Tuisova has been working hard while in camp with the Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Head coach Gareth Baber said he needed exemplary players like Tu­isova who have come in and adapted to the system quickly.

“I’ve been amazed at how Tuisova actually is and how he has been with his skills, understanding of the game, reading defensively and physicality.”

The Votua native from Ba is expected to play a crucial role in the team’s campaign at the Rugby World Sevens in San Francisco, this weekend.

NADUVA EYED FOR HALFBACK

Meanwhile, speedster Alosio Naduva has stepped up in the last two weeks and provides an extra edge in terms speed.

“Naduva is trained as halfback but he is on the wing as well so I am looking at ways that I can use him well,” Baber said.

“I have selected Alosio several times this season which has been the process of his development and learning. In the last two weeks he has been sensational in our training session and I know the opposition don’t like playing against him,” he added.
