Fiji Airways men’s 7s speedster Aminiasi Tuimaba, Vilimoni Botitu and Meli Derenalagi will be heavily monitored by their opponents at the Hamilton tournament in New Zealand this weekend.
Fiji 7s Coach Gareth Baber says the players now have a reputation after their performance in the first leg.
He says they need to work an extra mile to help the side defend the title.
“They not newbies anymore. They got a bit of reputation and players plus the coaches will know this and they will look to pressurize them and look for the weaknesses. The good thing about three of them is that they do their work humanity.”
Baber is expected to name his final squad tomorrow.
Fiji is pooled with Australia, Wales and Argentina.
