8:37 am on 19 January 2008

Fiji rugby 7s coach, Josateki Savou, will select his 12-man team in

Lautoka today to play in the second leg of the IRB World Series

New Zealand and USA tournaments.

Savou says he will monitor the performance of the 15-member squad at the Fijian National 7s tournament

He says he will look at players who are aggressive around the ruck ball

area and also hunt for speed in players.

He says he will be keeping an eye on two veteran players, Neumi Nanuku and Setefano Cakau.

One of the two will will be named captain after Etonia Naba was stripped

off the captaincy because of arriving late to camp for training.

The coach has hinted that there could be a couple of new players forcing

their way into the side.
