“Keeping in mind that the big one is the Olympics, we need to continue with the positive mindset towards that journey – the road to Paris and that is why we are trying to utilize all the squad members and give them an equal opportunity for selection and to play in the World Sevens Series.”

The former national halfback underscores the importance of addressing these issues during the recent Nahehevia 7s before the team departed for Vancouver.

Fijiana will take on the USA in their first pool match at 7.30am on Friday while the Fiji 7s play Spain at 11.20am.
