Lift Momentum: Baber

Gareth Baber wants the players to lift the momentum in the remaining tournaments of the World Sevens Series.

Fiji Airways Fijian 7s head coach departed with the team on Friday for the Los Angeles 7s with the first game against South Korea at 6.51am on Sunday, France at 9.47am and Argentina at 3.05pm.

“Sport is about momentum, sometimes you have it and sometimes you don’t,”he said.

“Our biggest challenge is getting back to where we were the last season where created momentum the way we were playing and put our performances together.

“L.A is a new tournament for us so it will take a couple of days to acclimatise.

He was happy with the preparation after the win in Sydney early this month.

“We came back from Sydney and assessed the players. Training went very well at Pacific Harbour, Deuba for two weeks.”

WARM UP GAME

The Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team will have a scrimmaging session with Australia in their scrimmaging session on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

“On Tuesday morning we will play Australia in a scrimmaging session,”Baber said.

The side are pooled with France, Argentina and South Korea.

“Pool is in a tough one and we are up against two teams (Argentina, France) that have beaten us already this season.

“The first game will be against Korea.

“We need to get our mindset right against Argentina and France.

“We still maintain that we need to win every game to win the title. “That was what we did in Sydney.”
