Sport: Fiji Sevens team to play with flair

11:34 am on 1 December 2011

The Fiji sevens team plan to play an open attacking style of rugby at this weekend's second round of the IRB series in Dubai.

Fiji looked back to its best with lots of running rugby at last weekend's opening round of the IRB Sevens series in Australia, which they won.

The coach, Alifereti Dere, says they intend to play with that same kind of flair during this weekend's round in Dubai.

He says it's something he and his assistant coach Eddy Waqa have both strived for.

"That's what we've been talking about with Eddy, I'm very thankful to him for his taking the team and keep on playing that style of rugby as we discussed from home."

Fiji are three points clear of New Zealand on the IRB standings.
