Strong rugby supporter Kester Yee believes that Fiji has got the right players for the 2012/2013 HSBC Sevens World Series.
The Tacirua businessman said what made these players tick is their ability to tackle anyone that came their way.
However, Yee said he does not agree that changes have to be made for the next leg in Dubai and South Africa.
“Why change and disrupt our winning combination?
“We should change the players that are injured but keep the same lot so they work on perfecting their combination.”
Yee said he respects national coach Alifereti Dere’s decision but he believes that making a lot of changes will delay our progress.
“The support for the Fiji team is always there from me but I’m just voicing my views because I treat all this game like a business.
“If I’m making money from a product I won’t change it that fast. I’ll keep on it until I see a decline in sales. By then I’ve got another product at hand to sell.
“That is why I believe making four to five changes is not answer right now probably after South Africa then we can decide on the next step to take. To keep the core of the team to play in Dubai will be a good test for them. This will be much different from Gold Coast as teams will come in much fitter and better prepared for them and this will allow us to test them and see their true colours.”
Yee said he would like to wish coaches Dere and Timoci Wainiqolo all the best they prepare to take the team to another level.
