Sport: Fiji sevens team already looking ahead to World Cup

10:53 am on 1 May 2013

With the World Series race all but over, Fiji coach Alivereti Dere says his team is already looking ahead to June's Sevens World Cup in Moscow.

The World Series resumes in Glasgow on Saturday, before concluding in London next week.

Fiji are in third place overall, 34 points adrift of runaway leaders New Zealand, and Alivereti Dere says their attention is already starting to shift.

"We'll try and play a consistent game so it will set us up for the World Cup. Especially for the local boys so they've got a hard task here-even trying to maintain their positions-because of the overseas based players coming in so they are trying hard to maintain their position in these last two legs."

Fiji are pooled with Australia, Argentina and Spain in Glasgow and welcome back captain Setefano Cakau, Vilitati Sokiveta and Joji Ragamate.
