Defending Fiji Bitter Marist 7s champions Tabadamu Blue have opted to go in as underdogs.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday, Tabadamu man­ager Leo Naikasau said they are going to field a lot of young talented players and would go into the tournament as under­dogs.

“Our preparations has been normal for any sevens tourna­ment that we have been competing in,” Naikasau said

“We don’t want to emphasise more on our previous record win in this tournament. We want to enter into this competi­tion with a low profile deliver and to deliver our best perfor­mance.

“Also, we are aware of the upcoming competitive sevens teams who will be part of this tournament. We won’t be underestimating any team that we’ll be facing in our pool matches.

“This time around majority of our squad are made-up of talented players and they are assisted by former national sevens rep like Beniamino Vota and Leo Naikasau Jnr.”

As expected Tabadamu Blue are expected to be boosted by the presence of their playmaker Terio Tamani and forward Apenisa Cakaubalavu.

Meanwhile, most captains of the 64 men, 12 women and Un­der- 20 teams turned up for the captain’s photo shoot at the ANZ Stadium.
