Fiji Airways men’s 7s coach Gareth Baber expects the national side to display its best performance from the first pool match at the opening tournament of the 2018/19 World Rugby Series in Dubai.
Fiji is pooled with Kenya, Scotland and France.
Baber says the three teams will have different game styles and they should be prepared for it.
“The draw provides a mix of styles for us to combat. We are aware of the physicality that Kenya bring, Scotland will want to create pressure through moving the ball from edge to edge whilst France will look to individual game breakers to give them advantage. This is to keep us on our toes and hungry to put in place our game.”
World Series champions, South Africa leads Pool A alongside Argentina, Samoa and Zimbabwe.
Commonwealth Games gold medalist and World Cup champions New Zealand takes in charge of Pool C with USA, Spain and Wales while Australia tops Pool D and will play England, Canada plus Japan.
The Dubai 7s will be held on the 1st and 2nd of December this year.
