NATIONAL men's hockey coach Hector Smith Sr expressed his disappointment with the way their game against Ireland was judged by the umpires.
Fiji lost to a high ranked Ireland side 0-13.
"It was a poor game, we could have done a lot better," he said.
"I feel one of the umpires was interfering with another umpire, which is not supposed to be the case," he said.
"The umpiring was very disappointing," he said.
"We enjoyed the game but disappointed with the result."
Fiji had a lot of opportunities to score in that game.
John Ah Tong's drag flick was stopped by David Harte, the goalkeeper of the Irish team.
The men's form were different from their first game they played against India.
This was a determined team, but it was technicalities deployed by the Irish that did the talking on the astro turf.
In the first 10-15 minutes, the Irish side struggled to find their mark.
Coach Andrew Meredith said that Fiji defended so well and they had to work very hard to change the game to their style.
Meredith saluted the Fiji boys for putting up a good game saying that even though they hardly played in this international standard, they are doing very well.
"We are more experienced," he said about his team.
Ranked 15th in the International Hockey Federation World Ranking, most of the Ireland's players have a 100 plus international caps to their names.
After missing out of the London 2012 Olympics after a last minute goal by Korea in the Olympics qualifier in Dublin, the Irish are hoping for a better fate here in Delhi.
