Former Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s winger Timaima Ravisa is on a mission.

The 30-year-old is fighting hard to regain her spot in the Fijiana 7s squad after a sterling performance for the Fijiana XVs side during the Oceania Women’s Championship late last year.

Ravisa was is in devastating form during the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s where she played for Striders as they made the women’s Cup final.

“I’m making my way back after completing my studies at the Fiji National University,” she said.

Ravisa confirmed that she was dropped from the Fijiana 7s side be­cause of injuries and her commit­ment in completing her studies.

“Despite the unfavourable weather conditions it has been a great two-day of competition at the Marist 7s,” she said.

“As we are aware the national team coaches are present at this tournament scouting for players to be part of the national 7s side.

“I know some have been question­ing why I didn’t make it to the na­tional 7s team but at the moment I’m entirely focused on my rehabili­tation programme.

“So, participating in this Marist 7s tournament is to help gauge my fit­ness level and continue being part of what I am passionate about and that is playing rugby.

“Well, as far as the future is con­cerned I’m hoping to make a come­back in sevens rugby.”
