Fiji coach Ben Ryan calls for Nacuqu and Domolailai to prove their worth at Fiji Bitter Marist 7s next week

Waisea Nacuqu and Apisai Domolailai will need to prove their worth to Vodafone Fijian 7s coach Ben Ryan during the 39th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s next week.

Waisea Nacuqu and Apisai Domolailai will need to prove their worth to Vodafone Fijian 7s coach Ben Ryan during the 39th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s next week.

The duo left with the Daveta Rugby Club on Wednesday to defend the Borneo 7s at the Sandakan Rugby Club this weekend.

Ryan said he would consider them for the next leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series in Hong Kong and Japan but they need to perform at the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s.

“It is good that they get an opportunity to go abroad and have some game time but as long as they are back in the country to take part in the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s,” Ryan said.

“Apisai (Domolailai) was unlucky in the last leg time because he was falling a bit behind and falling ill.

“As for Waisea (Nacuqu) he didn’t attend some of the training sessions so that’s why he got pushed out and now other players have filled that position like Seremaia Tuwai.

“But as long as they are back in the country and playing in the Fiji Bitter Marist 7, then we will see from there.”

Nacuqu will be keen to gain some valuable match time from the tour with the view of impressing Ryan and regaining his spot in the national side.
