Fiji Airways Fijian 7s coach Gareth Baber is likely to keep the 12-member squad that won the Hong Kong 7s for this weekend’s Singapore 7s.

Baber said there was no injury in the team and was impressed with how Livai Ikanikoda manned the playmaker’s berth.

“We all know that teams in this competition will be tough and it’s all going to be about preparing well in terms of sticking to our plans and what is best for the team,” he said.

“We’ve talked about what we are going to do this week and we know the processes have to be right in getting ourselves in that position to win back-to-back tournaments.”

Baber said the players needed to have confidence in what they planned and make sure that they were sticking to it and not getting blinded with the distractions around them.

“Things such as fatigue and other relevant elements may show up a bit, so we are going to vigilant.

“We experienced such fatigue in our players and there are few players who played more than the others and we’ll be mindful of that too.”
