Fiji 7s coach Osea Kolinisau says with all eyes on the Paris Olympics in July, his focus still remains on the World Sevens Series.

Kolinisau said the Hong Kong 7s next weekend is the perfect setting to gauge where his team is at and how to move forward.

The former national 7s captain said he wants to do justice to Fiji’s participation in the sevens circuit, particularly with this being the final time that it will be held at the iconic Hong Kong Stadium before it moves to a new venue next year.

“We’re focusing on Hong Kong, and I’ve been telling the boys if we are going to go to a tournament, we are going to go with the goal to win. I told them we just focus on what is in front of us, we can’t look ahead and forget about the tournaments that are coming up. These are important tournaments and will help us on the road to Paris.”

Meanwhile, Osea Kolinisau is slowly finding his footing in the Fiji Airways Men’s 7s coach’s position.

He took up the job a week ago and Kolinisau said is still getting used to the administration side of things.

Despite being new to the role, Kolinisau is confident this will not hinder his performance in restoring lost glory to the team.

“When you’re playing, you don’t really see the work that the coach, the manager and the physio have to do. You just focus on playing, and you make a lot of demands of them. But becoming a coach, there is a lot of side to it, especially spending more time assessing games and reports that you got to submit.”

Kolinisau will name his final squad this week for the Hong Kong 7s, which kicks off next Friday.

Fiji is in Pool A with Australia, Canada and France.
