The McDonald’s Fiji Coral Coast 7s in Sigatoka has provided an ideal platform to prepare our national side for the Perth 7s that will be held next week.

Fiji Airways Fiji 7s coach Ben Gollings says the players are responding well to the tough conditions at Lawaqa Park and the gruelling matches against local teams.

Following the teams’ gritty cup quarterfinal win over Army last night, Gollings is impressed with the resilience to the pressure from the soldiers.
