Sir Gordon Tietjens says what he has loved most about the Samoan players from the start is their humility, respect and how they just want to get better.
Tietjens say any Pacific Island team, whether that be Tonga, Fiji or Samoa, they understand the game.
The Samoan 7s team coach says the biggest issue for the Samoan players is handling the tough times and the disappointment when they make errors or miss a tackle or drop a pass that perhaps costs them the game.
He adds part of his role is to get them to move past that and get them to the next job and be positive.
The Samoan 7s team is pooled with the Fiji Airways Men’s national 7s team, New Zealand and Russia for the Sydney 7s.
The Sydney 7s begins on the 26th of this month.
