Jumping the gun

The other daily reported that our Fiji 7s team management are working on winning the elusive Commonwealth Games 7s gold in April 2018.

I don't know if Fiji 7s fans are supposed to lift their hopes high or close both ears from hearing the wishful dream from the Fiji 7s camp?

With all due respect to the Fiji 7s management, please stop jumping the gun, win one or two tournaments first before talking about winning the Commonwealth Games 7s gold.

Last time around Australia and New Zealand brought in some big and fast super rugby players in their bid to win the Commonwealth Games 7s gold.

Our boys are lean and smaller, they have the sevens magic but their tackling is pathetic and need to improve on their concentration and basics.

We Fiji 7s fans will know after the next two legs of the HSBC Sevens World Series, whether our boys stand a good chance of winning the elusive Commonwealth Games 7s gold.

Right now, let's take it one game at a time and remind us of plans to win the elusive Commonwealth Games 7s gold, when we are about to cross that bridge.

Go Fiji, go and may 2018 be your year!
