Fijian national hockey coach Hector Smith Senior reminded the players they should play smart and make the right decision.

He made the call during training at the National Hockey Centre as they prepare for the second round of the Hockey World League in Dhaka, Bangladesh next month.

“We’re working on the importance of possession and decision making,”he said.

“In hockey, inside the 22 metre there is no room for error. It’s not all about how fast you can run, but it’s how smart you can play.”

Smith has been working closely with the new and Under-21 players.

“I want them to get exposed early and work towards the future.”

Smith has pleaded for support from businesses to help them qualify for the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia next year.

“We are passionate as any other sports. Our objective is to be part of the top 10 in the Commonwealth as we are currently ranked 18th.”
