All eyes on Fiji team at Dubai sevens
November 24, 2014 12:02 am
The Vodafone Fiji 7’s side is aware the other teams will be out to beat them at the Dubai 7’s next week.
Coach Ben Ryan says it’s up to the players to rise to the occasion after they won the Gold Coast 7s.
“I think they will be tightly on our back. We are the team to chase now. We are the informed team. I know the opposition would have all re grouped by now. South Africa has an awesome squad for Dubai, I know how successful England have been in Dubai over the last decade and New Zealand are going to be hurting. Samoa as runners up are going to have lots of confidence. I also think for us and these group of players, the feeling of being threatened. They will react very well to that. They’re a stubborn group and they have gone through some hard times.”
The Dubai 7’s will be held from the 5th to the 7th of next month.
