China rugby 7s men’s coach Lu Xiahui says, they will be learning and building-up their teams as much as they can during their stay in the country.

The Chinese men and women’s teams participated in last weekend’s Ram Sami Nasinu Rugby 7s tournament at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori where they played against some of the top clubs.

“It was a good tournament and the level of rugby in Fiji is very good so there are a lot of things that we can learn from them,” Xiahui said.

He said the Nasinu 7s tournament was a good platform for them to gauge their strengths and weaknesses specially playing against some of the top teams in the country.

However, Xiahui highlighted there were a lot of positives to be taken from their stay in Fiji.

Adjusting to the weather and the different game structures were just some things they would be taking up as a team.

“The hot weather definitely affected. The way we play but it is okay, we love the people here and it has been a real good experience for us.”

Also he revealed that this was the first time for them to be taking part in a major tournament.

“Yes we want to play in more tournaments like this, as we do not have the experience but we have learned a lot from playing in this tournament.” he said.
