Rawaca for Fiji at Oceania

Former Fijian 7s winger Savenaca Rawaca has returned to national colours after an absence of six years.

Rawaca joins dual Olympic Gold Medalist Jerry Tuwai and veteran Semi Kunatani as one of the old hands to guide the Fiji 7s team at this weekend’s Oceania Rugby Super Sevens in New Zealand.

“He came back to Fiji and he asked for an opportunity and from my perspective, I have always got the door open and it is up to the players how they take up the challenge,” coach Ben Gollings said on Rawaca’s inclusion.

Gollings said the key for the team at the tournament was to see their processes at work.

“We will focus on the key elements such as on our combinations, developing new thought processes to the way in which we want to play plus try and polish up on the certain areas of the game. I’m sure if we do that we will get the result we want.”

Josua Vakurunabili, Napolioni Bolaca, Josefa Talacolo and Sevuloni Mocenacagi have missed out due to injuries.
