‘The players talk about it often’ – Fiji sevens thinking of home after cyclones hit Pacific nation

 In sports

Fiji sevens coach Gareth Baber admits recent natural disasters that have hit the Pacific nation are a topic of a discussion in camp as the team prepares to bid for its first Commonwealth Games gold medal this week.

Last week six people died when Cyclone Josie hit the island of Viti Levu, while Cyclone Keni has hit Kadavu this week.

Baber, speaking to media following a training session yesterday, said the devastation wasn’t extra motivation for his side, but was occupying the minds of his players.

“If you look at any motivational element you want to perform, I think many sportspeople would say they’re not far away from doing it for the ones they love and care about,” he said.
