World Series getting tougher: Ryan
December 12, 2015 3:03 am
Vodafone Fiji 7s coach, Ben Ryan says things will only get tougher as the World Sevens Series season progresses.
Following a successful outing in Dubai last weekend, Ryan believes it will be twice as hard to repeat their feat in the inaugural Cape Town 7s tournament in South Africa from tonight.
“This week with stomach viruses floating around the teams, some injuries from Dubai and also some opportunities for those guys to put their hands up again in leaving that selection of teams to the last minute until the very last minute will help us immeasurably for the second leg with such a big competition ahead of us. Some very strong teams looking like they are doing everything they can to knock us down a peg or two.”
Fiji will take on Scotland in its opening pool match of the Cape Town 7s at 9:59pm.
Fiji will then face Russia at 1:20am tomorrow and Argentina at 5:03am.
The Cup quarter-finals will begin at 11:04pm while the semi-finals start at 3:34am on Monday and the Cup final to kick-off at 6:30am.
You can watch the entire tournament live on FBC TV and catch live commentaries of Fiji’s matches on Radio Fiji One and BULA FM.
