Former national rugby 7s selec­tor Epi Kolinivala believes that head coach Gareth Baber has selected the best possible team for the Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Fran­cisco this weekend.

“The dropping of Eroni Sau, is very interesting,” he said after Sau was ear­lier named as the 2018/19 World Sevens Series Rookie of the Year.

“But it shows the strong competition for positions among the players as they try to make the final team.”

Kolinivala said Baber knows what’s best since he has been working with the players.

“One wrong move and we’re out of the tournament as far as the draws are concern.”

He has called rugby fans to offer their prayers in support of the team.

“I’m a hundred percent behind the team and I’m confident that they are going to win the World Cup,” added Ko­linivala who works for the United Na­tions Mission- based in South Sudan.
