The biggest area of disappointment was in our defence.

That is the comment of Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s team coach Ben Gollings after Fiji’s disappointing performance in the Vancouver 7s.

While speaking to the media via zoom, Gollings says it is positive that they managed to keep the top four position that they gained last week.

The coach further says it is frustrating that they did not build on from their performance last week.

After the Vancouver 7s, the national side is on fourth place on the Series standings with 94 points while New Zealand leads the points table with 120 points.
