Telecom Fijiana 7s coach Iliesa Tanivula has mapped out plans ahead for the 2014/2015 IRB Women Sevens World Series.

He said that despite winning the IRB  Women Sevens World Series Qualifier in Hong Kong, China, over the weekend, there were few areas they needed to improve on before the first leg in Dubai on December 4-5.

“This is a historic achievement for the girls and the country,” Tanivula said.

“And this is just the start of a new journey for Fijiana.We need to work extra hard before we compete on the big stage.

“I believe we can achieve good results as these girls are really committed and worked very hard.”

Tanivula is optimistic that more women will be involved after the win in Hong Kong.

“I think we will have more women joining to prove their worth,” he said.

“We just need to look at our programme and make sure we work smart and try to copy what the boys are doing.”

He said the Fijiana team was well-prepared and deserved the win in Hong Kong.

“We really put in a lot of energy and the results showed but we still can improve individually,” he said.

“Three weeks training towards the tournament was intense and it was mentally challenging for the girls but they managed to pull through.”

Telecom Fijiana 7s captain Rusila Nagasau said those who wanted to wear the Fiji jumper should come forward and work hard.

“My message to those who hope to join Fijiana is to use the God-given talents,”  Nagasau said.

She said they would celebrate the win but the real test is yet to come.

“We will try to work together, train hard as a team and listen to our coach.”
