Fi­jiana fit: Crack­nell

Fiji Sun - - Rio Olymplcs -

Women’s Rugby coach­ing di­rec­tor Chris Crack­nell has been im­pressed with the cur­rent per­for­mance of the na­tional women sev­ens squad prepar­ing for the Rio Olympics next month. Crack­nell com­mended the girls’ at­ti­tude and he couldn’t ask for more. “Fit­ness lev­els have gone through the roof, the girls are very fit,”he said. “We’ve got a cou­ple push­ing up and over the scores we have set for them and the girls at the bot­tom are re­ally start­ing to step up. Tough week last week as they trained with the boys on the beach.” Crack­nell said the girls know it would be hard fight­ing for a spot in Rio. “I’m not go­ing to drop any­body yet to­day but the girls know I could tap them on the shoul­der any­time.”

Crack­nell will have the 13 play­ers next Fri­day. STELLA MORESIO Edited by Osea Bola
