Peni LutudromuPeni LutudromuFIJI Airways men’s 7s team must maintain last weekend’s Hamilton Sevens flair and verve to win the Sydney Sevens.


Peni Lutudromu, the award-winning Saskatchewan, Canada rugby coach says with the very mindset Fiji is in good stead to hit the podium on Sunday and extend its lead on the HSBC Sevens Series points table.

“Fiji needs to come into Sydney Sevens with the same winning attitude”, he said.

“Pick up where they had left off and play that Fijian game that they’re known world over”.

Peni, who was bestowed by Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, Vaughn Solomon Schofield Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers award in 2017, says Fiji had everything good going for them in Hamilton.

“Again, they need the all-conquering start”.

He added, the team has everything, they play for one another, attack and defend, be that showmen and have ruthless efficiency that has become the hallmark of the side after the Cape Town and Hamilton Sevens.

Peni said South Africa, Australia and USA would show up for the Sydney Sevens in the hopes of winning it all.

“South Africa would want to avenge its 29-7 Cup semifinal loss and while Australia who got beat 26-19 in the pool play would like to take a decisive run to retain the title, they won in 2018, it’s Fiji that is hot on the heels that could win its treble title with pure ease.

“All Fiji need to do is to play with the same intensity, flair and verve, maintain discipline and that would do in Sydney”.
