Baber: Our Final Starts Today

Every team that play against us at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games from today will be treated as a final, says Team Fiji men’s rugby sevens head coach Gareth Baber.

Baber said they have adopted a mindset of treating every game as a final.

“Every game is a final to us,” he said from Tokyo, Japan, yesterday.

“We’ve got to win six finals, so from Monday morning we are going into a final.”

Baber said this was what they had trained for.

“I’m not saying we are going to play these six finals perfectly, but we want to see the elements of performance that we have worked and trained for.”

The Fijians face Japan in their Pool B opener at 12pm today and Canada at 8pm.
