The Fiji Airways men’s 7s side is expecting a crucial match in the Hong Kong tournament next weekend.
The Fijians side will try to beat Australia and New Zealand in its pool matches or win two pool matches to advance to the cup quarters.
Head Coach Gareth Baber says they are doing whatever they can with the squad he has to try and defend the Hong Kong title.
“It’s tough as everybody can see and we talked about playing three finals and we already playing half of the games we play in the tournament and we know our players we took in the likes of Hong Kong in the past years when you have that focus of tough oppositions and the focus come earlier on and that’s what we’re looking into at the moment.”
Fiji is pooled with arch-rivals New Zealand, Australia and Kenya.
Fiji meets Kenya at 11.37pm next Friday in its opening pool match, they will then play Australia at 5.13pm Saturday before taking on New Zealand at 8.55pm.
The cup quarterfinals start at 2.58pm on Sunday, cup semifinal final begins at 7.41pm and the cup final kicks off at 11pm on Sunday.
