We’ll look at changing things again: Fiji 7s coach Gollings


Fiji 7s coach Ben Gollings will again keep opposition guessing with his starting lineup for every game at the Singapore 7s this week.

The national coach says he understands that there needs to be some form of consistency his run on side but he trusts all the players to deliver when they’re given the opportunity to play.

Gollings said they’re all geared up for the Singapore 7s.

“We will look at changing things up again it gives the opposition a different dimension, it also gives players opportunity for less minutes but more impact but it will build through the tactical awareness and we’ll make sure we get it spot on for this weekend”.

Meanwhile, Fiji 7s rep Sevuloni Mocenacagi is fit and ready for the Singapore 7s this weekend.

Mocenacagi missed the Hong Kong 7s last week and coach Ben Gollings says they made the right call not to risk him in So Kon Po.

“We lost Sevu before the tournament on Friday morning and it was the right decision to not try and push him in case the infection got into the actual joint and make things worse so it was a shame, we missed him but he’s back, he’s fit, infection’s gone and right now we looking good.”

Few players were nursing some minor injuries from Hong Kong but have recovered which include Napolioni Bolaca and Iowane Teba.

According to Gollings, Bolaca’s knee had a knock more than anything else while Teba is recovering from a hamstring.

Gollings says the players were assessed after 48 hours and right now it’s all positive.

Fiji will play Samoa, Spain and Canada in the pool games in Singapore 7s this weekend.
