Fiji Airways 7s coach Gareth Baber has reminded players to put the victory in Hong Kong behind them and set their focus for the Singapore 7s.
Speaking from Singapore this morning, Baber says the players are recovering well and are reminded to stay focus and maintain their consistency.
“We know that Hong Kong is emotional and is a big event but and part of our learning is how players understand how to put tournament in its place and the strategy around that and reset that mind on what has been done last week and repeat the performance they need to put in this weekend.”
Meanwhile, Baber has paid tribute to Jerry Tuwai describing the play-maker as “four players on the field” in Hong Kong.

He says Tuwai is a little man but the work he can do around the field, the maturity and the decision making.
Baber will name his lineup for Singapore tomorrow.

Fiji meets Canada at 4.36pm in its first pool match on Saturday, they will play Scotland at 8.20pm and take on South Africa at 11.28pm in its last pool match.
