Sevens maestro and Russia 7s head coach Waisale Serevi is making the most of his time with the players as he chases two goals he has set for them.
Serevi who has been with his new charges for five months says he is trying to get his squad becoming a fixture on the world 7s series circuit and qualifying for next year’s Tokyo Olympics.
The South China Morning Post reports, Serevi has seen the progression in the side and the players have learned quickly from what he has implemented in the squad.
Serevi says he is trying to create a game culture for Russia and get them to be one of the giant-killers in the 7s series.
Russia was relegated from the series at the end of last season and will play in the qualifiers in Hong Kong.
The Russians are pooled with Uruguay, Jamaica, and Ireland and the winner will get a spot in the 7s series.
