Future looks bright

On our first outing at the Global Brisbane 10s, the Fiji Giants are returning home winless but I tell you, with more exposure and preparation, expect our boys to do well in the future.

Fiji came so close to upsetting the Brumbies and Hurricanes, who were laced with Super Rugby stars.

Some wrong options, poor discipline, high penalty turnover and missed tackles let us down.

Against the Crusaders, our performance was not too bad, considering that last year's finalists had won against the Brumbies and Hurricanes with a bigger margin.

Hats off to the Fiji Tuwawa side for their performance. Although fans were expecting a win, our boys found the Brisbane heat too hot.

There's always a next time boys. Finally, congratulations to the Blues for winning this year's Global Brisbane 10s. Definitely a big statement from the Auckland warriors!

On the other hand, our 7s team marches into camp this week.

The win in Hamilton is history and our boys must not be carried away with the win.

Sensational Police rugby 7s and former Penrith Panthers U20 wing and 2018 Mana Whey Fiji Coral Coast 7s player of the tournament Sakeo Railoa is expected to march into camp.

This is good news as our boys prepare for the Las Vegas and Vancouver 7s tournaments.

I don't think there is a need for any other inclusion because our boys have what it takes to win tournaments.

They just need to be motivated and positively nourished with self-belief and humility. In addition, it's good to have an ace up their sleeve.

In Hamilton, it was Army speed merchant Naduva and in Las Vegas, it looks like that the Police gasman is in to make headlines.

My pick includes Josua, Paula and Nasoko in the forwards, Jerry at halfback, Ravouvou at playmaker, Railoa at wing and Sau berthing the rover's position. Toso Viti!
