When the Vodafone Fijian 7s team side arrived home from the last leg, captain Osea Kolinisau said they have learned from their 30-7 loss to Kenya in the final of the Singapore 7s.

“Kenya played really well and they deserved to win,” he said.

“We did not play to our level and catch up rugby is really hard to deal with. For us giving Kenya the win is a blessing in disguise as they are far behind in the points table.

“We want to be beating NZ and South Africa in the Singapore 7s. This puts us on a good note. It’s okay for us as Kenya were playing their 146th tournament.

“I was happy to see them win as I was still in high school when I started seeing them play.

“Playing and getting a win in their career means a lot to them, their nation and fans and those that are following the sport.”

Kolinisau said they have now set their focus in winning the two remaining tournaments in the European leg of the 2015/16 World Sevens Series.

“Next stop is Paris and London and we have one leg already in the series to defend our title,” said Kolinisau who became the first Fijian to play a record 50th tournament in the series history.

“We have one leg in the series, like this last year we were eight points behind compared to eight points ahead now.

“We need to continue this momentum and we are going to reach our goal as a team. We have learned a lot in Singapore, we found out how tough it was for the boys,” he said. The Paris 7s is from May 13-15.
