Fiji Airways Fijian 7s head coach Gareth Baber will now focuses on off-field discipline as they prepare for the Las Vegas Sevens on March 2-4.

“You know they will need to look after their health, eating the right thing, stay off alcohol because their body needs to recover.

“The mind needs to recover before we go out to Las Vegas Sevens,” Baber said.

Fiji tops pool A alongside Kenya, France and Russia. In Pool B, South Africa will play England, Canada and Wales. Australia, winners of the Sydney 7s and Bronze final in Hamilton, are drawn in Pool C with Samoa, USA and Spain.

New Zealand will face Scotland, Argentina and invitational team Uruguay in Pool D.

The focus now is consistency.

“You know we can play some great stuff, we didn’t do much in Hamilton, there were moments within games where, we lost our way a little bit, but found our way back and it’s developing our players,” Baber said.

“We have a couple of days this week, this will be recovery week and obviously we will be doing some work as well.”

Baber said they have a new group of players playing against teamsthat have been participating consistently in the series.

“The huge task is to go and compete against nations that have professional players playing at international level and we need to be consistent,” Baber said.

“We know we can beat anyone, we got to stay consistent in the way that we are as Fijians and the way we prepare in every tournament,” Baber said.
