The Wardens will enter the 2017 Fiji Bitter Marist 7s as underdogs on March 24-25 at the ANZ Stadium.

Head Coach Sailosi Naiteqe said they have learnt their lessons after the Coral Coast 7s final losing to First Light Taveuni 10-12 and have now regrouped for the annual Marist 7s with new reps eager to shine.

“We are on track with our preparation,”Naiteqe said.

“We have learnt our lesson from the Coral Coast 7s. It was a big lesson for us since we lost to a new, fittest and a good team.

“We have regrouped, went back to the drawing board and now we are looking forward to the Marist 7s.”

Naiteqe also said it’s a huge challenge for the team this year playing without big names like former national 7s reps Ilai Tinai, Joji Ragamate.

“We don’t have big names but young blood. It’s a big challenge for the boys as we have been playing in the Marist 7s every year. But we will be going in as underdogs this year.

“We have the same team from the Coral Coast 7s and we have been preparing physically and mentally,” he added.

Bolstering the side is Fiji Baabaas rep Risiate Tadulala, Sevuloni Tawake joined by Simione Cecenayawa and Mosese Baravilala.
