Written By : MOIZ MUNIF . The decision on whether any overseas based would be available for Fiji at the second leg of the IRB seven series would be made soon says Digicel sevens coach Waisale Serevi.
It was earlier believed that Japan based players in form of Man Mountain Semisi Naevo and William Ryder could be in for the Wellington and San Diego leg.
“I cannot say anything at the moment, maybe later next week,” Serevi said.
Despite the result from the first leg, fans now look up to Serevi to help Fiji out of the doldrums.
Serevi told SUNsports yesterday that he was aware of the expectations from the fans.
“I know what the expectations are from the fans of the national side. Especially when they see Serevi with the team,”
“They must understand my position that I’m not on the field anymore. I’m now just there to guide the players and my options are limited now. But it will be a major challenge for me,” Serevi said.
The sevens wizard said that players have also been made aware of the public wants.
“This year a lot of prizes are at stake in 7s with the IRB series with the World Cup in Dubai and the World games. The Fiji fans demand results and I have already talked to the boys about this. I have told them to work hard if we are to achieve our goals,” Serevi said.
Meanwhile, Serevi took out and had a training run with few members of the national squad. Serevi said this was the usual drill when he meets up with players to have a training session.
The Wellington 7s would be held on February 6-7 and the San Diego leg a week later.
