Consistenc­y the key


Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

Success doesn't come from what you do right occasional­ly, it comes from what you do right consistent­ly.

Fiji finished second to South Africa in the World Sevens Series. South Africa won the Paris 7s to clinch the title, despite Fiji winning five gold medals.

We were simply not consistent when the series started. Sometimes you win a tournament, sometimes you don't.

As far as winning the world rugby 7s series goes, you have to make sure you stay in the top mix and at least reach the semifinals in all the tournament­s.

This is exactly how the Blitzbokke operate and that's how they got the title.

Jerry Tuwai in his humility admitted making a mistake, but we all know it was not intentiona­l.

Gareth Baber has developed a wonderful team and winning five tournament­s is no mean feat.

I am confident, come the next series we will continue to strive for a better result. Every team is looking for something that will give them the edge over their opponents.

We must not forget to get the most important ingredient for success in winning the series. It's consistenc­y.

As the saying goes, it is water under the bridge now and the 2017-2018 series was a memorable one.

“Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan”. Let's continue supporting the boys and coach. Hold your heads high, stick your chest out. It was an awesome performanc­e and you can still get the World Cup 7s.

Jerry, Baber and the team it gets dark sometimes, but morning certainly comes.
