The Voda­fone Fi­jian Sev­ens train­ing squad march into their Up­ris­ing Beach Re­sort camp in Pa­cific Har­bour to­day. The squad un­der­went a gru­el­ing train­ing ses­sion last week. In an ear­lier in­ter­view Voda­fone Fi­jians coach Ben Ryan said af­ter their Easter break he is go­ing to go hard on the play­ers. “We will be high­light­ing the con- tact ar­eas and the phys­i­cal el­e­ments of our game,” he said. Ryan said team would be work­ing on their ac­cu­racy at break­downs and on their one-on-one tackle tech­nique, which he de­scribed they were nor­mally good at. The re­turn of key for­wards Api­sai Do­mo­lailai and Vil­iame Mata from in­juries has au­gured well with the side as the of­fi­cials await the out­come of the re­hab on play­maker Vatemo Ravou­vou and vice-cap­tain Isake Ka­toni­bau. The Hong Kong 7s tour­na­ment is from April 8-10 and the Voda­fone Fi­jians are in Pool D along with Wales, Canada and Korea. The Sin­ga­pore Sev­ens is set for April 16-17.
