THE Flying Fijians had themselves to blame following a humiliating 0-53 loss to Ireland A at Thomond Park, in Limerick yesterday.

It was Fiji's third loss for the autumn tour after being thumped 12-54 by England last week and edged 31-29 by English club powerhouse Gloucester.

The Fijians failed to live up to expectation and conceded eight unanswered tries in one of our worst defeats in recent times.

Former Flying Fijians assistant coach Reverend Joji Rinakama said the players failed to execute the basics of the game.

"They did not have enough time to prepare as a side. That was one of their biggest problems," he said.

"They'll have to return to basics to improve their form."

The second-string Irish side led 29-0 at half-time.

Fiji faces Georgia in its last game on November 24.
