Fiji Airways Fijian 7s rep Ke­poni Paul will need to work hard if he is to keep his spot in the team.

Paul and Terio Tamani made their debut at the Singapore 7s over the weekend.

Paul, who hails from Totoya, Lau said, “It was a good eye opener for me I did not have much game time but have learnt a lot. I have to work harder if I have to make the Lon­don-Paris leg. I’ve three weeks to prove myself in camp. The last two tournaments would be tough.”

He never lost hope in represent­ing Fiji again after the 2015 Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea where Fiji defeated Samoa by 33–7 in the final to claim the gold medal.

“Since then I have been knocking on the selector’s door in the past four years but I did not get through. There are a lot of talents in Fiji but once you get the selection, you are lucky and to make the most of it,” he said.

Fiji currently leads the World Sevens Series points table with 145 points ahead of South Africa (141), New Zealand (120), Australia (108) and USA (93).
