Hong Kong day was not our day but day three we came back and put in the effort and the consistency in our performance. That’s something to build upon and we’re just taking it game by game.”
Meanwhile, France’s Captain Jean Pascal says they hope to continue shocking rugby 7s giants in Singapore to move up the standing.
“We have reached two finals and we as a group have been working a lot. Now we can see the quality of our game improve on the field. We want to do the same for the last three tournaments but we will see what the plan is but we’re here and we want to continue like that.”
