The Fiji Airways mens 7s side hopes to move up on the World Rugby Sevens Series standings after the Las Vegas tournament this weekend.
The side has 62 points and sits seven place behind New Zealand while South Africa maintains the lead with 77 points.
Fiji 7s Coach Gareth Baber says, they need to win the Las Vegas 7s to have some hopes to finishing in the top two at the end of this season.
“To take on the hills of New Zealand and South Africa and put ourselves in a position by where we gain points and finish on the first or second spot. We never felt down in the couple of tournaments and we picked some backup like in Hamilton so now we want to capitalize on that.”
