The Russia Red and Russia Blue side coached by Fiji Rugby Legend Waisale Serevi are ready for a blistering tournament in the Marist 7s today.
The two Serevi coached teams are using the 43 Fiji Bitter Marist 7s as a learning and development platform.
Serevi says their participation in this year’s Marist 7s is to expose his players to the atmosphere of rugby in Fiji.
“Especially in Fiji, it’s a different kind of sevens that we play. We are used to throwing the ball around – that is another thing that we have to figure out how to defend. We’re here to try and learn as much as we can. It’s rugby development for them. There’s a couple of players that will be playing for the first time in big tournaments but other players are used to playing in major tournaments so playing in Fiji, they’re all looking forward to playing good rugby during the weekend.”
Meanwhile, the 43rd Fiji Bitter Marist 7s will kick off today at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.
