January 19, 2019 10:00 am
Fiji Airways men’s 7s Coach Gareth Baber says they have a good balance in the team after naming the 13 member squad for the Hamilton tournament.
Baber says new players have been given guidance in regards to the expectation placed upon them together with the pressure that comes with it.
“We’ve had several conversation with the group and the leadership team as well. Everybody knows exactly where they’re at and obviously when the decisions are made the players would be the first to know. We need experience in our team and we’ve got a good balance of field in the group and we’ve got new players coming through.”
Meanwhile, the Fiji 7s side begins its campaign against Wales at 10.52am next Saturday then faces Argentina at 2.42pm and plays Australia in its last pool match at 6.52pm.
The Cup quarter-final begins at 10.36am on Sunday, Cup semifinal starts at 3.16pm and the final is scheduled for 7.10pm.
