Fiji Airways Fijian 7s head coach Gareth Baber has called for a new format in the running of sevens competitions in the country.

While there may be substance in what he wants in place, Mr Baber has to realise that time is not on our side as we have the 2018/19 HSBC World Sevens Series coming up and the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan is just around the corner.

This signifies the need to get down to serious business.

Firstly, it would be ideal for him to release members of the Fiji Airways Fijian 7s extended squad to play for their respective clubs in the local 7s tournaments so they can be tested out and gain match fitness.

This will allow Mr Baber and his coaching crew, more time to be at local sevens’ tournaments where they can scout for other talents that are out there.

There is an abundance of talented players involved in local 7s tournaments and Mr Baber and his fellow slectors will surely have a hard time when it comes to finalising their list.

It’s now time to get to work and we wish Mr Baber and his coaching team all the best as they put their heads together to give us a winning team that we are all eagerly waiting for.
