7s series


Pranil Ram, Votualevu, Nadi

It wasn't to be, we gave everything to win the 2017-2018 series, but it wasn't enough. A single mistake sometimes changes the whole complexion of the game. England played it really smart and spoiled our party.

We waited in great anticipati­on that other results fall in favour, but that wasn't to be. What really was peculiar about this series was that the winner was decided in the last tournament and as well in the last match. This is the beauty of the sevens rugby these days. Very unpredicta­ble.

South Africa really stepped up their game in the semifinal and it seemed like they wanted it more.

Hats off to our boys for coming out second best. It requires huge sacrifices to be away from families and giving it all for your country.

To some of our rugby enthusiast­s please let's stop whining. The 7s series is done dusted.

The World Cup Sevens is just around the corner.

Let's reinvigora­te our players so that they once again rise up to the new challenge.
