FIJI AIRWAYS MEN'S 7S COACH GARETH BABER
Fiji Airways men’s 7s coach Gareth Baber believes players have been giving their best shot to get selected for the Hamilton and the Sydney tournaments.
Baber says despite dropping few players through indiscipline and injury, others have stepped up and are aware of the tough challenge ahead.
“I want to create that depth. Every team and coach is after that. The hard part done is making sure they stay hungry and they stay at that level if we have got 18 or 19 players we should try and get them to continue to play in the tournaments overseas and if not picked then in the local tournaments.”
Baber is likely to name his final 13 member squad for the Hamilton 7s next week.
The Fiji 7s side kicks off its campaign against Wales at 10.52am on Saturday week 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.
You can watch the entire tournament live on FBC TV.
