Nauru men’s 7s rugby team anticipates good outing at Oceania 7s tournament

The Nauru men’s rugby team is aiming to stamp its mark at this year’s Oceania 7s tournament.

The side held its first training in Fiji Monday arriving on the same day.

Team Manager Godwyn Debao says they have been training for months and are hoping for a good outing at the tournament.

“We hope we get some good results and see improvements in our playing strategies compared to last year,” Debao said.

“Rugby is not a popular sport back at home and we hope that getting a good exposure here and producing good results will help to promote the sport back at home,” he said.

The Nauru women’s team will arrive in Fiji tonight ahead of the two-day competition in Suva which starts on Friday.
