Fiji’s performance in Wellington and Sydney has set up a new bench mark says Vodafone Fijian 7s coach Ben Ryan.

“I thought Fiji’s performance in Sydney was a step up from Wellington apart from that semifinal performance,” Ryan said.

Ryan had in fact reminded the players that matches would be competitive when they got on the plane to Wellington last month.

“We got on the plane as the No. 1 team in the world. That’s where we are at the moment.

“We played South Africa and New Zealand with players like Sonny Bill Williams, the Ioane Brothers Akira and Rieko, Ardie Savea.

“Our boys, all locals with the exception of Semi Kunatani, and we are still on top.

“We are ahead of where we were last year. We got more points, it’s a defensive record and we are topping the table in nearly everything, head of restart, top points scorer, most tries, most conversion.

“There is a lot to be more positive about. We have lost only three games now. Our opponents have lost at least five.”

Vatemo Ravouvou tops the most points scored table with 202 points and also leads the most conversions table with 71.
