Former Fiji 7s coach Peni Veidreyaki says the deferment of the Tokyo Olympics is a blessing in disguise for national coach Gareth Baber in his bid to defend the Olympics gold medal.

Veidreyaki said it was time for the coach to formulate a winning combination.

He said with the current health and safety situation because of the COVID-19 pandemic the players need to try their best to train daily to maintain their fitness.

“Baber has set out a training program and the players should follow that,” Veidreyaki said.
