The man who has returned to the job of coaching Samoa's national rugby sevens squad after a five year gap has hit out at some of his players over a lack of dedication to the cause.

Fuimaono Titimaea Tafua has signed a two year deal with the aim of taking Samoa through to the Olympic Games in Rio, where rugby sevens will be on the programme for the first time.

But more immediately, the new coach says he's had to deal with some poor off-field disciplinary standards within the squad.
