The Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s side will need to step up their physicality, keep the momentum going and turn the narrow losses into wins at the Cape Town 7s this weekend.

This was highlighted by coach Ben Gollings as the team looks forward to another tough tournament ahead of them in South Africa.

Gollings says they are working on tightening up their game management in specific areas to finish games off when they put themselves in a good position.

He says the team had a focus week this week as they focused on recovery and getting some of the details back in the game.

Gollings says they are looking to finish 2023 on a high note.

Fiji will take on France at 8.28pm Saturday in their first pool match, they will then take on Spain at 11.06pm Saturday before taking on Argentina at 4.50am Sunday in their final pool match.

The cup quarter finals will kick off at 8.34pm Sunday, the semi finals will start at 12.56am Monday and the cup final will be at 5.23am Monday.

Meanwhile, the Fijiana 7s side will play Japan at 7.22pm Saturday in their first pool match, they will then play Spain at 9.34pm Saturday before playing Australia at 1.54am Sunday in their last pool match.

The Women’s cup quarter finals will start at 7pm Sunday, the semi finals will be at 12.12am Monday and the women’s cup final will kick off at 4.43am Monday.
