Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s coach Ben Gollings says with the way Hong Kong 7s tournament is played out it is basically cup final after cup final, especially with Samoa in their first game.

Gollings says he knows Samoa is going to come out strong, and it is really key for Fiji to set a good platform and get the tournament off to a good start.

The cup quarter-finals will start at 2.02pm Sunday, the semi-finals will begin at 7.29pm Sunday and the final will be held at 12.15am Monday.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s team will take on Ireland at 5.04 this afternoon in their first match before playing Brazil at 9.04 tonight in their second match.

They will meet Australia at 1.55pm tomorrow in their final pool game.
