We need to con­tinue this mo­men­tum and we are go­ing to reach our goal as a team. We have learned a lot in Sin­ga­pore, we found out how tough it was for the boys

Voda­fone Fi­jian 7s cap­tain

When the Voda­fone Fi­jian 7s team side ar­rived home from the last leg, cap­tain Osea Kolin­isau said they have learned from their 30-7 loss to Kenya in the fi nal of the Sin­ga­pore 7s. “Kenya played re­ally well and they de­served to win,” he said. “We did not play to our level and catch up rugby is re­ally hard to deal with. For us giv­ing Kenya the win is a bless­ing in dis­guise as they are far be­hind in the points ta­ble. “We want to be beat­ing NZ and South Africa in the Sin­ga­pore 7s. This puts us on a good note. It’s okay for us as Kenya were play­ing their 146th tour­na­ment. “I was happy to see them win as I was still in high school when I started see­ing them play. “Play­ing and get­ting a win in their ca­reer means a lot to them, their na­tion and fans and those that are fol­low­ing the sport.” Kolin­isau said they have now set their fo­cus in win­ning the two re­main­ing tour­na­ments in the Euro­pean leg of the 2015/16 World Sev­ens Se­ries. “Next stop is Paris and Lon­don and we have one leg al­ready in the se­ries to de­fend our ti­tle,” said Kolin­isau who be­came the first Fi­jian to play a record 50th tour­na­ment in the se­ries his­tory.

“We have one leg in the se­ries, like this last year we were eight points be­hind com­pared to eight points ahead now. “We need to con­tinue this mo­men­tum and we are go­ing to reach our goal as a team. We have learned a lot in Sin­ga­pore, we found out how tough it was for the boys,” he said. The Paris 7s is from May 13-15.
