National 7s Program Manager Gareth Baber says consistency is a big part of performance, and he thinks the Fiji 7s teams will admit that they are not performing to the level they want to.

While speaking on fijivillage Straight Talk with Vijay Narayan, Baber says the performance of the team is also reflective of a number of other teams that are not stepping up.

He says his job is to find ways to improve the consistency in the players' performance, and he will discuss with Osea Kolinisau and the coaching staff what they need to do to make sure that they are getting to that level.

The Tokyo Olympic gold medal winning coach says he thinks there is also a drop in the performance of the Fijiana 7s side.

The Fiji 7s teams are preparing for the upcoming HSBC Hong Kong 7s next month, where the men’s team will begin their campaign against Australia at 9.30pm next Friday, they will then take on Canada at 12.33am next Saturday and play France at 5.43pm next Saturday in their final pool match.

The Fijiana 7s side will play Australia at 4.25pm next Friday in their first match, followed by their match against South Africa at 7.12pm next Friday, and they will play Ireland at 3.02pm next Saturday in their final pool match.

The Hong Kong 7s will be held from next Friday to Sunday.
