Nauru train with Fijians ahead of Oceania 7s

The Nauru 7s team is taking its outing in the upcoming Oceania 7s seriously with a week-long training scheduled to take place with a Fijian 7s team.

The Dagan Kaierua-coached side flew out of Nauru today (Tuesday) to spend a week in Nadi with the Yamacia 7s side. 

Nauru Rugby Union took to social media to express gratitude to Yamacia Rugby Club founders and brothers, David and Alfred Dakuitoga for opening their arms to help the Nauru national team.

 Prior to departure, the team had a friendly scrimmage session with Fijian Expats in Nauru.

 Head Coach Kaierua was grateful to Fijian expats for availing themselves to have a run with his players.

 “We all know Fiji, Fijians all play rugby and 7s rugby is their national sport. So it was a good session to have,” he said on the social media platform.

 The union also acknowledged the continuous support from the Nauru Government in the form of financial assistance for both men’s and women’s teams as they also do their part in trying to raise some funding through fundraising.

 Nauru is pooled with Australia, Tonga, American Samoa and Vanuatu at the Oceanian 7s that will be held in Suva from 7-9 November.

 1. Johnny Dagiaro 2. Zac Temaki 3. German Grundler 4. Charles Dagiaro 5. Teolime Kamtaura 6. Yoshi Harris 7. Tama Jeremiah 8. Noel Detenamo 9. Niga Haulangi 10. Dave Mwaredaga 11. Kaifa Dagiaro
