April 3, 2019 4:03 pm
Fiji Airways 7s Coach Gareth Baber says the national side is working on creating a team culture that pushes it to perform at its best, regardless of where it is playing.
Fiji being the most successful team in the Happy Valley tournament, most notably in the last 4 years.
Baber says with the new faces in his side, he hopes to a have a team that performs in every tournament like Fijian teams usually do in Hong Kong.
“I suppose the big thing this year is that we have new players coming in, some younger players in and the change this year is probably introducing them to feel what Hong Kong is about.”
Fiji is pooled with arch-rivals New Zealand, Austral, and Kenya.
Fiji meets Kenya at 11.37pm on 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.
