Alifereti Dere urges Seremaia Tuwai to lead the team to score four straight wins in Hong Kong next month 

Former national 7s coach/captain Alifereti Dere has issued a challenge to Fiji Airways Fijian 7s skipper Seremaia Tuwai.

He wants Tuwai to be the first Fijian to lead the team to score four straight wins at the Hong Kong Sevens next month.

The Nadi native led Fiji to win the Hong Kong Sevens three times in 1990 – 1992 and coached Fiji to win in 2012 and 2013.

He urged the team to lift their defence to another level and aim for four consecutive wins.

“There is nothing impossible to achieve in sport. We did it during our days and we hope that team can make history by recording four straight wins in So Kon Po,”Dere said.

“That is the challenge for Tuwai and the players. We won three in a row, they can create history and go one better.

He strongly believes Tuwai has slowly matured as a leader.

“Tuwai has started to understand the role he is in and how he can distribute the task to senior players around him.

“The boys are playing well. I do have my advice to the team – beef up defence. When the defence is good they win, but we need them to lift it to another level,” he said.
