Winning is our ultimate aim and we need to be at our ultimate best: Ropate Kauvesi

 

The Vodafone Fijian 7s team is on track and looking forward to the last two legs of the World Sevens Series in Paris and London.

Vodafone Fijian 7s manager Ropate Kauvesi said their main priority now was the Paris 7s next weekend.

“Our main focus now is playing well in France and anything that happens after that in London is a bonus,” Kauvesi said.

Fiji currently leads World Sevens Series eight points clear of South Africa on 147.

“Our target is to finish on top and so far we have managed to keep our lead and we are definitely looking forward to the next three weeks to achieve that.”

With Samisoni Viriviri, Leone Nakarawa, Waisea Nayacalevu, Josua Tuisova and Semi Kunatani joining the Fiji 7s team in London Kauvesi said the team was on track for the Rio Olympics in Brazil in August.

“We’re preparing very well and we are very happy with where we are right now especially with the conditioning of the players,” he said.

“They have been putting in the work and been serious with their training. We are also looking forward to training in London to meet up with the five players playing in Europe.

“This of course will be a real boost to the side.

“We’re still on track for Rio, the players are at the stage where we want them to be and after the series its two months of solid training before we head out to the Olympics.

“Winning gold is our ultimate aim and it won’t be a walk in the park, the team needs to be at its ultimate best and I believe we are building towards that.”

Fiji departs for France tomorrow for the Paris 7s on May 14-16.

Fiji is in Pool B with Samoa, Scotland and Wales.
