Fiji Airways men’s 7s coach Gareth Baber says they need to control possession if they are to match up with any team in Cape Town this weekend.
Baber says this was one of the weaknesses in their frustrating quarterfinal loss to the USA team in Dubai over the weekend.
He says the USA dominated their kick offs and they controlled their possession which led the USA to score two tries at the second spell.
“We constantly looking at the system where we run and defense as well to get the ball back. The biggest issue is always going to be possession and making sure we control possession.”
Fiji plays France in its first match at 9.59pm today, then faces Kenya at 1.20am on tomorrow before playing England in its final pool match 5.03am.
The Cup quarter-final begins at 11.04pm tomorrow, semi-final will be held at 3.56am on Monday and the final is scheduled for 6.44am.
