First five-eighth Peceli Nacebe needs to be a team player, says Fiji Airways Fijian Drua head coach Senirusi Seruvakula.

This is after the France-based player showed his skills during the scrimmaging session against the RFMF XVs at Prince Charles Park, Nadi on Friday.

“Nacebe is Nacebe. He still got it but he still needs to organise himself to be a team player rather than just to think of himself,” Seruvakula said.

Nacebe took the National Rugby Championship by storm during the Drua debut season in 2017.

From thereon he signed a two-year contract with France Top 14 rugby club Bordeaux Beagles and then Brive RC.

Seruvakula was impressed with the performance of the team so far.

“There is still room for improvement and we‘ve a couple of days to fine-tune what we do,” he added.

“There are new and old players in the team who have a chance to step up.”

The side returns to camp on Monday, presents i-ta­tau (seeking traditional blessing) on Tuesday before flying out on Wednesday.

The side face Brisbane City in their opening clash on Saturday.
