'Casual' play

THE Vodafone Fiji sevens team needs to do away with its "casual" approach of the Japan 7s tournament as it enters the knockout stages.

That's the view of Red Rock 7s mentor Lote Rasiga as Fiji progressed through to the quarter-final of the HSBC Sevens World Series tournament at Prince Chichibu stadium in Tokyo.

Fiji struggled to settle in the tournament with a narrow 22-19 victory over France in the opening pool match and managed a 19-all draw against the US.

However, the Ben Ryan-coached side outclassed Samoa 33-7 in its final pool match to seal a spot in the top eight.

"We need not to be casual," Rasiga said. "If our pool matches are tough like that then we need to be on the alert during the quarter-finals. It is going to another level so we have to regroup well if we need to progress to the next stage."

The national side will face either South Africa or Kenya in the cup quarter-finals at 1.50pm today.
