Aussies say Dere's men too good

Maciu Malo In Hong Kong
Monday, March 26, 2012

AUSTRALIA sevens coach Michael O'Connor praised the performance of the national 7s team after Fiji's 22-5 win over his team on Saturday night.

He said wrong decision- making and the class of the Fijian players were the main contributing factors to their downfall.

O'Connor said Fiji rugby, with many new reps, had a bright future.

"Fiji was just too good with the ball. They fully utilised their chances to win the game," he said.

"Where for our boys we also had a lot of chances but we never made use of them. Our defensive pattern was not that good allowing the Fijians to burst through our defence.

"Fiji has been outstanding and they should be confident of their chances with a good chance of winning the tournament."

He said the Aussies were still in a rebuilding stage with many new players playing in Hong Kong for the first time.
