Fiji Police 7s enforcer Suliano Volivoli has earned himself a plane ticket to LA after Fijian 7s coach Gareth Baber included him in his 14-member touring squad for the next two legs of the HSBC World Sevens Series.
Baber said Volivoli’s consistent work ethic and attitude to training has impressed.
“He’s got a maturity about his game, and he knows the game of sevens, he just loves to work, he’s got a great work ethic and that’s what we love about him.”
Baber believes the team will need to lift to another level across all areas of their game from Sydney.
“With big effort from the boys we will continue to get better in every tournament we play”
“I’m quite pleased with the way that we’ve been training, and now, we’ve got a good opportunity going into LA against teams that have beaten us previously, to step up.”
He added that their biggest challenge is to get the results they need from their pool.
“We won’t let anything distract us of what we aiming for, it’s about being focused on the job at hand, getting those performances right and continuing to develop how we play.”
