Fiji reps out of Coral Coast 7s

Players who will be picked into a reduced 16-member Fiji 7s squad to be announced Friday will not be released to their respective clubs for the upcoming Coral Coast 7s.

Digicel Fiji 7s assistant coach Timoci Wainiqolo said this is part of measures to keep injuries and unnescessary setbacks at a minimum ahead of the Dubai and Port Elizabeth 7s tournaments.

"All players except for Joji Ragamate will be released to their clubs this weekend, but from next week when the 16-member squad march in Tuesday, we won’t be releasing players,” Wainiqolo said.

He said there target is to end Fiji’s 13-year drought in Dubai and felt the only way to ensure they field a competitive team is to give players ample rest and reduce outings that would compromise plans.

“Only Joji Ragamate will not be allowed to play when released this weekend. He is carrying an ankle injury and would be need complete rest to ensure he is good to go when we get back next week for two solid weeks of rugby training.”

The last two weeks of preparation have been focused entirely on classroom and admin sessions with players given their individual DTEs to follow.

The 2012 Coral Coast 7s tournament is scheduled for 15-17 November at Nadroga's Lawaqa Park.
