Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s coach Saiasi Fuli is facing challenges in trying to secure his players in the long run.
Fuli says the Fiji National Rugby League has posed a threat for them as majority of the players that were involved in the women’s 7s and 15s teams last season are now moved to rugby league and it’s a concern.
He says he is doing whatever he can to keep his players in the sport.
“My focus right now is to secure these girls and its good we have the support from the Fiji Rugby Union of securing the contracts of the girls and that is my goal right now to keep this girl together. They are very talented and keeping them as we aim to qualify for the Olympics and later I’ll expand the squad.”
The Fijiana side is preparing for the Japan 7s which runs on the 20th and 21st of next month.
Fiji is pooled with USA, Ireland and England in the tournament.
