Etuate Waqa says the Vodafone Fiji 7s team should improve its defence at the USA 7s in Las Vegas this weekend.

Waqa said when Osea Kolinisau and Semi Kunatani were suspended for two games, the players struggled against England at the Wellington 7s last week.

“We have capable players but when we lost Kolinisau and Kunatani, the players were desperate to win,”Waqa said.

“The team need to form and organise themselves well in defence.

“Many new and young reps played for New Zealand last week and they defended well.”

Waqa also questioned players playing in new positions.

“Semi Kunatani is forward since he started playing rugby 7s and for him to be playing in the wings is different.”

Fiji last won in Las Vegas in 2007 where they defeated Samoa 38-24 in the final.
