Fiji looking forward to title defence

12:05 pm on 16 December 2010

Fiji Sevens coach Iliesa Tanivula is looking forward to his team defending it's Wellington title at the start of February.

Fiji were knocked out in the semi-finals by eventual winners New Zealand at the George Sevens in South Africa on the weekend and currently sit fourth in the World Series standings.

Iliesa Tanivula says all of his injury concerns should be over by the time the team leaves for Wellington, a place Fiji always enjoys competing in.

"We've got a wide fan base in Wellington and hopefully we'll get back there and try and get it back to back. But as I said we've still got a lot of these young guys in the team and I guess you've just got to keep training the team for every game as we go."
