Acclimatization vital for Fiji's London 7s campaign
May 15, 2019 5:00 pm
Adapting to the cold conditions in London is vital to the Fiji Airways 7s campaign next weekend.
This was highlighted by Assistant Coach Kane Jury.
Captain Paula Dranisinikula believes if they are to finish first on the overall series standings then they have to do the little things right.
Coach Gareth Baber will join the team later on Friday but Nacani Cawanibuka, Tomasi Cama Senior and Assistant Coach Kane Jury are traveling with the side.
Jury says the team had a few acclimatization exercises before they left.
“And that’s the most important thing too, in a high-performance environment is getting their bodies right and it’s a big time difference as well around 11 hours so we started adjusting last night so the boys were playing pool and playing cards and they were enjoying each other’s company later to the night and they’ve had a few hours’ sleep, eat some breakfast in the plane and then go back to sleep again.”
Fiji will play Samoa, Kenya, and France in pool play in London which kicks off next Saturday.
