Fiji to expect “brutal” Samoa

The Fiji Airway’s Men’s 7s side can expect a brutal encounter against Samoa in the cup semi-final of the Toulouse 7s and will have to be clinical in defence.

Our top rugby commentator, Antonio Rahiman says Fiji cannot afford to have a slow start against Samoa as we did in the quarters against USA.

He says Samoa which is the most improved side in the World Sevens Series will punish Fiji if we allow them to play.

Samoa has so far beaten teams like South Africa and England in the Toulouse 7s.

Rahiman says Samoa has some big forwards, are very structured in defence and have speedsters like Va'a Maliko who is their top try and points scorer.

Fiji came from behind to beat USA 19-17 in the cup quarters this morning.

Fiji will play Samoa in the second cup semi-final at 12.36am tomorrow while Ireland will take on France at 12.14am in the first semi-final.

The final will be played at 4.26am tomorrow.
