Fiji Rugby Union coaching director, Frank Boivert says the only thing that will hamper the Fiji 7s team’s progress in Japan is their lapse in concentration.
Boivert has pointed out the Hong Kong 7s final last weekend where Fiji lost concentration in the dying minutes of the game, resulting New Zealand capitalising and scoring two tries.
“This is Fiji’s only weakness and they must be able to maintain their intensity throughout the full game and it must be done in Japan if we are to take the lead.”
New Zealand maintains the lead in the series standings with 111 points – just two clear of Fiji who are on 109, South Africa is third and are ahead of England and Samoa.
The Tokyo 7s kicks off this weekend, Fiji leads Pool A with England, France and Japan.
Series leaders, New Zealand leads Pool B with Australia, USA and Hong Kong.
Argentina, Wales, Kenya and Russia are in Pool C while South Africa, Samoa Scotland and Portugal are in Pool D.
