 Tough decisions are expected to be made following Fiji 7’s teams dismal performance in the World Series.
 
Coach Gareth Baber admits stress and especially discipline is a concern but won’t elaborate on what exactly has spooked Fiji 7s gold medal winning team.
 
Baber says it’s time to strategise and rest some of the experienced players.
 
“There will be but I’m not going to probably name them now. I’m back here to see where we are with the players see exactly some of them won’t want to play even though they have played a huge amount of game over the two weekends.”
 
Meanwhile, Fiji 7s players have admitted a lot of mistakes were made in the last two tournaments.
 
The players say they have themselves to blame and will work on improving it ahead of Hong Kong 7s.
 
Jerry Tuwai who was one of the outstanding players says there is a lot to work on before the next leg.
 
“It’s been a good two weeks. Lot of things to learn. Lots of mistakes to work on. There are a lot of new boys who are still developing with the old boys.”
 
Fiji now turns its focus to the Hong Kong tournament in three weeks’ time.
 
In Hong Kong, Fiji is pooled with New Zealand, Wales and Japan.
