Team of the year

The Voda­fone Fi­jian 7s team has been pre­sented the Team of the Year award by the fa­mous Esquire ME, where 7s mae­stro, Waisale Serevi, pre­sented the tro­phy to the team. Not only are they 2016 Olympic Games 7s cham­pion, and the 2015/16 HSBC World Sevens Se­ries champ, they now en­ter the 2016/17 Se­ries start­ing with Dubai, hold­ing the 2016 Team of the Year award. So I be­lieve, ev­ery team out there in the HSBC Sevens World Se­ries will want to top­ple our 7s cham­pi­ons, and our boys should re­ally be at the top of their game to re­main on top. Mean­while, Cawanibuka has in­cluded the two debu­tants, Setareki Bi­tu­niy­ata and Kalione Na­soko, in the Dubai com­pe­ti­tion, with half­back Emosi Mulevoro on stand-by as the 13th player. While we all want our boys to kick start the se­ries by win­ning the Dubai leg, let us not for­get that any­thing can hap­pen in 14 min­utes. The boys have been play­ing to­gether and bonded for some weeks now and I be­lieve they will not dis­ap­point their Fi­jian fans and sup­port­ers.

Go Fiji, go!
