Olympic gold medal winning Fiji 7s captain Osea Kolinisau says the Fiji Airways Menโ€™s 7s team needs to re-look at their defence.

Kolinisau who is in Dubai with his LAR Speranzar 7s team says Fiji 7s players are missing a lot of one-on-one tackles.

Fiji finished 9th in the second leg of the Dubai 7s and lost to teams like Spain and France.

Meanwhile, Kolinisau says LAR Speranzar is all about members of the team that won gold in the Rio Olympics.

Players like Pio Tuwai, Samisoni Viriviri, Semi Kunatani, Emosi Mulevoro, Apisai Domolailai and Apenisa Cakaubalavu accompanied Kolonisau for the exhibition tournament in Dubai.

Kolinisau adds they will play in other 7s tournaments and will also provide coaching clinics.
