They face France in the first game at 5:44pm today followed by Spain at 09:14pm and then Argentina.

Fiji had lost to Argentina, 12-19, in the bronze medal play off last week , they will face each other at 1:24am.

 

“There is no easy pool in the se­ries.”

“There are only 12 teams, three pools of four,” Fuli said.

“We have another tough pool, and we have done a lot of research and analysis this week.”

“We have put together a plan on how best we can come out strongly on that pool and advance into the final the following day.”

 

“We’re up against the ever im­proving Argentinians- very com­petitive, very aggressive team.

“France and Spain are well struc­tured teams.”

“We must be clinical and com­posed and fight our way through.”
