March 31, 2019 6:45 am
The Fiji Airways Men’s 7s side had a scrimmage session against host Hong Kong yesterday.
Coach Gareth Baber says the session is important for his team to help them acclimatize before the Hong Kong 7s kicks off on Friday.
Baber says they will continue to train up until the game day as this will assist in building momentum.
“We left early so that we can get over the flight itself so that the players can take the City in and get acclimatized. And pretty much get rid of the journey and get on with the training and keep the focus that we need obviously going into a tough tournament next weekend so we left a little bit early. We have our training venues booked through the weekend through to next week and we’ll go into the hotel on Monday.”
Fiji meets Kenya at 11.37pm next Friday in its opening pool match, they will then play Australia at 5.13pm on Saturday before taking on New Zealand at 8.55pm.
The cup quarterfinals start at 2.58pm on Sunday, cup semi-final begins at 7.41pm and the cup final kicks off at 11pm on Sunday.
You can watch the entire tournament live on FBC TV.
