HAVING the height advantage over other teams is at times our own nemesis but national men’s sevens rugby coach Gareth Baber is making sure we are not penalised for high tackles.

“We are trying to get the boys to reduce the height of their tackles,” Baber said.

“We work hard on that by having smaller targets for the boys to hit.”

The national team had a day off yesterday and will have its captain’s run today before the Parade of Nations at Fremont Street last night.
