Team Rio

Fiji Sun - - Comment - Shad Al­faz Ali, Navua

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Ben and bri­gade for reach­ing the fi­nal of the Sin­ga­pore Sev­ens. The loss to Kenya could be a bless­ing in dis­guise in our quest for gold at Rio.

It is an in­di­ca­tor to Ben that he needs to have the best pre­pared team with the avail­abil­ity of all our top play­ers. South Africa with speed and New Zealand with strat­egy would prove to be a more than for­mi­da­ble op­po­nents for our boys. We must not limit our se­lec­tion to lo­cal boys but pick the best avail­able play­ers based on form. New Zealand with the Ioane broth­ers, Savea, Ben Lam and SBW (if se­lected) would be hard to beat and favourites for gold. In ad­di­tion to hunt­ing Ne­mani Nadolo down we need to add Leone Nakarawa and Jo­sua Tuisova to our ranks. I wish all the best to Ben and the boys for the fi­nal leg of the sev­ens se­ries.
