"Specificity vital for improvement" - Nadmimin

New Caledonia's Fabien Nadmimin can't wait for the action to start with the Oceania Mixed Team Championship poised to begin at X-TRM North Harbour Centre in Auckland, New Zealand, on Tuesday.
New Caledonia's Nadimin was a late arrival for the Pacific Player Development Camp but says what he saw of Sunday's training sessions had whet his appetite for more.
"I've been in Auckland since Sunday and its been very good so far. Very good and very interesting to focus on specific training because back home the approach is very general.
"The training sessions are focused on specific technical skills which is useful for our long term development which is important," he said.
The Oceania Mixed Team Championship starts tomorrow with New Caledonia facing Guam at 10am NZST before they take on Francophone rivals Tahiti at 4pm NZST.
The top two from Stage 1 advance to Stage 2 where heavyweights Australia and New Zealand lie in wait. 
"There has been a long time rivalry but we're always excited to play Tahiti. Our focus will be to put everything into all the games and try as hard as we can to win, push our opponents hard and to compete at these championships with no regrets," he said.
