Fiji Airways men’s 7s coach Gareth Baber says they are confident of a good outing at the Las Vegas tournament next weekend.
The Fiji 7s side has 72 points and sits third on the World Rugby standings.
Baber says they can take over New Zealand and USA who sit ahead of them in the next two tournament.
“We are behind New Zealand and USA we know that going into this tournament not a bad position to be in because obviously you can have a crack out them as well. We know that we need to play well throughout our pool and to the knock out stages. We don’t change what we about.”
Fiji kicks off its Las Vegas 7s campaign against Scotland at 11.22am next Saturday, and will then battle Wales at 2.23pm before meeting Australia at 7.52am next Sunday in its last pool match.
The quarterfinals start at 1.46pm on Sunday, semifinal begins at 9.12am on Monday while the final will be played at 12.30pm.
You can watch the entire tournament live on FBC TV.
