The Rusila Nagasau captained- Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s have only two weeks to find their rhythm before the Women’s HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2019 kicks-off in Langford, Canada on May 11-12.

The side arrived into the country yes­terday after the Kitakyushu 7s in Ja­pan over the weekend.

“The tournament was a grand one but we did not reach what we aimed for,” said Nagasau.

“We managed to come back on the second day and as we did talked about sticking to our game plan up and get­ting things up and running.

“It is not about how long we are to stay down but it’s all about getting up to our feet and moving on from there.”

There is no injury in the side as they take a break and return to camp next Monday before they fly out of the coun­try on Sunday.

“We still expect the competition to be tough and we will talk about our game plans and the need for us to stick to it,” she added.
