We need your prayers, was the plea from Fiji Airways Fijian 7s captain, Kalione Nasoko.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday, Nasoko said despite the pressure of being the defending New Zealand 7s champions, they’ve prepared well and will enter the FMG Stadium in Hamilton today with a positive mindset.

“There is a lot of pressure for the side but all we are focusing on is our role in the team,” he said.

“We’re having a clear mindset and will take each game as it comes as we’ve been to various competitive tournaments like this before.

“And we’ll also try to effectively put in our game what has been directed to us by the coach.”

Nasoko said they would take each game at a time.

“We’ll wait for the first game and expect tough competition from our opponents Wales, Argentina and Australia.”

For the fans at home, Nasoko says, they’re asking for their support and prayers for the team during the two-day tournament.

“It will not be an easy battle for us but we’re positive,” he added.
