Seasoned playmaker Terio Tamani is optimistic of the Fiji Airways Fiji 7s team progress as they prepare for the Vancouver 7s next weekend. Tamani was instrumental Perth despite the team losing in the cup semi-final.

The Kadavu man, who made his international debut in 2018, has recently been an important part of the Fiji 7s team especially with this being an Olympic year.

He said it was good being back on the field after a break following their campaign in Perth.

“Good to be back in training as we focus and prepare for the next leg. I’m thankful we have the younger players joining in and showing a lot of confidence in the team, players like Ropate Rere,” he said.

“Rere’s confidence on the field was evident which is why he performed well and I am happy to see young players like him rising up to the challenge.”

Tamani also emphasised a few personal improvements that needed to be done before the Vancouver 7s.

“For me personally, I want to work on my defence, there is a need for continuous improvement. As one of the senior players, I understand the importance of working on our own weaknesses,” he added.

The nippy playmaker is hoping that the team will put an end to their title drought in the Vancouver 7s which is scheduled to start from February 23-25. Fiji is grouped with Perth 7s winner Argentina, host Canada, and Spain in Pool D.
