Having new players for Fiji in the HSBC Sevens World Sevens Series in the Gold Coast this weekend is a good choice, says Tomasi Cama.
The former national rep believes this is the best time to blend new players for the Rugby World Cup 7s in Moscow next year.
“This is a good ground to test young bloods and for the coaches to work on identifying a good combination as we work towards the World Cup in Moscow.
He added Fiji needed to have a system in place to allow players to come into the national team fully understanding what was needed of them.
“It will also make the work for the coaches easier as all they will need to do is work on the combination and polish up skills instead of teaching them the basics of the game.
The former national 7s rep/coach was the chief guest at the Nabua Mini 7s competition yesterday.
Cama was happy with the 7s revival in Nabua, a place once known for breeding national reps with the likes of the Rauluni brothers, Alifereti Dere, Waisale Serevi and Cama himself.
“I didn’t know that there was going to be a Nabua 7s tournament,”Cama said.
“I’m really happy about the idea.
“But players are committing themselves too much.”
He said what used to be an open game of rugby looks more like a committed game now.
“We are now following the way Europeans play. We need to work more on what we’ve got and these types of small tournaments helps players to get better.”
Cama returns to China next week where he is coaching the Anhui Rugby Club.
