Ravouvou's absence will be felt says Baber

January 19, 2019 6:07 am

Fiji Airways men’s 7s Coach Gareth Baber says play-maker Vatemo Ravouvou will be heavily missed in the upcoming tournaments after he was dropped due to disciplinary issues.

Ravouvou played a vital role in the side but Baber says there are other players like Waisea Nacuqu who can step up and take responsibility.

“The necessity of Vatemo Ravouvou is sensational and he is one of the best in the world with re-start. Know I feel that obviously there are other players who are pushing that here in the squad and that’s what I need to ensure that everybody stays as disciplined as they can and making sure they get their technical work done.”

Meanwhile, the Fiji 7s side begins its campaign against Wales at 10.52am on Saturday week then faces Argentina at 2.42pm and plays Australia in its last pool match at 6.52pm.

The Cup quarter-final begins at 10.36am on Sunday, Cup semifinal starts at 3.16pm and the final is scheduled for 7.10pm.

You can watch the entire tournament live on FBC TV.
